Live the writer's life in New York City. The New School's Creative Writing MFA program allows you to join a community of diverse voices, plug into New York's publishing world, and build a network that will support you through graduation and beyond.

Creative Writing MFA students develop their craft in workshops and literature seminars led by an internationally recognized faculty with close ties to New York publishing and the city's literary scene. Courses and events are held in the evening, enabling students to work during the day while in the program.

This two-year, full-time creative writing program offers concentrations in:

  • Fiction
  • Nonfiction
  • Poetry
  • Writing for Children and Young Adults

If you're thinking about pursuing your master's in creative writing, find your place in a center of learning where creativity, support, and experimentation come together at The New School.

Program Highlights

  • Take part in workshops and seminars led by an internationally recognized faculty with close ties to NYC’s literary scene
  • Immerse yourself in the publishing world, learning crucial skills and techniques to get published
  • Enter the creative process from the inside out, learning to read like a writer, and take courses in publishing and multimedia storytelling

One third of the curriculum consists of Writing Workshops. Guided by an experienced writer-teacher, students work intensively on their manuscripts, with a focus on the creative acts of self-editing and revision. Workshops meet for two hours; structure and content are adapted to the student's area of concentration

Access to New York City Publishing

Evenings with agents and editors, exclusively for MFA students, provide informal opportunities to meet publishing professionals. Courses and internships provide students with hands-on experience in publishing. In The Writing and Publishing Lab, students use new and traditional technologies to produce works that combine text and images, while also taking part in project-based internships. In Freeman's Journal Seminar, students help produce a professional journal distributed by Grove Press. Students also serve as editorial staff members and work with alumni on The New School's nationally distributed literary journal, LIT.

Recent student internships include

  • PEN
  • Guernica
  • The Academy of American Poets
  • Scholastic
  • The Center for Book Arts
  • Interview magazine
  • Tin House magazine

The publishing and literary worlds are changing quickly. Graduates, faculty, and partners of the program are at the forefront of the reinvention of literature. Novels and poems aren't going away, but it is increasingly important for writers to be able to tell stories with images as well as words. Courses in the MFA program give students the tools to become leaders in a transformed industry.

Named among the top international affairs programs by the Foreign Policy Association, the. Julien J. Studley Graduate Programs in International Affairs. Read more

Named among the top international affairs programs by the Foreign Policy Association, the Julien J. Studley Graduate Programs in International Affairs are distinctive in the New School tradition: critical, engaged, and iconoclastic.

The New School’s graduate programs in international affairs offer students unique opportunities to engage with global problems in the heart of New York City. Students develop a critical perspective on global issues and benefit from field-based learning, small classes, a distinguished faculty, and flexible study options. Students in the master’s degrees and graduate summer programs come from diverse academic backgrounds, from global and area studies to the social sciences and media studies.

Our 42-credit Master of Arts (MA) degree program is designed for students beginning their careers in international affairs. MA students select from five concentrations, enabling them to specialize in a particular area of international affairs. They also develop a wide range of tools and skills required to enter the international field and gain hands-on experience through our International Field Program and through other practice- and field-based learning opportunities in New York City and beyond. Students can pursue the degree on a full-time or part-time basis.

Students in the MA program can choose one of five concentrations:

  • Cities and Social Justice
  • Conflict and Security
  • Development
  • Governance and Rights
  • Media and Culture

Our innovative modular Master of Science (MS) degree allows early- to mid-career professionals to tailor their studies to their specific interests and career goals. The modular structure makes it possible to combine skills and substantive knowledge drawing from courses in international affairs as well as other New School programs in social research, design, media, and other fields. The MS can be pursued on a full-time or part-time basis. To enter our MS, students must have at least three years of professional experience. Returned Peace Corps volunteers with two years of completed service and others with international work experience may be considered for the MS.

The MS curriculum allows students to focus on subject and skill areas that serve their personal interests and talents. Each student selects one of several Subject Modules and one of the Critical Tools and Analysis Modules. Potential combinations include: 

  • Humanitarianism + Geographic Information Systems
  • Global Advocacy + Media Production
  • Cities and Sustainable Development + Community and Participatory Development
  • Development Policy + Economic Analysis

Global Alumni Network

Our alumni community comprises a global network of over 1,400 graduates. SGPIA graduates work in public and government service, international organizations, NGOs and nonprofits, academia, the media, and the private sector. Recent SGPIA alumni hold professional positions at major international organizations such as: the United Nations, UNICEF, UNFPA, Women Deliver, Save the Children International, Oxfam America, US Department of State, Doctors Without Borders, and MSNBC.

International Field Program

The International Field Program (IFP) enables students to spend nine summer weeks working and conducting research with community-based organizations, NGOs, and government agencies around the world. They gain hands-on experience abroad while following a rigorous course of study, combining in-country seminars, professional internships, and independent research with faculty supervision. Since 2001, there have been IFP sites in more than 30 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Europe, with new sites frequently developed.

United Nations Summer Study Program

The UN Summer Study program puts students on the ground in the UN and in New York City. The seven-week program goes beyond conventional security and diplomacy issues to investigate development, human rights, humanitarian action, peacebuilding, and environmental issues. Coursework prepares students to understand and engage with contemporary global governance, while practicums provide hands-on experience in UN consultancy work.

Graduate students at The New School for Social Research ask the kind of questions that challenge the status quo across the social sciences and humanities.

Guided by rigorous scholarship and a desire to apply academic discourse and discovery to current social problems, they critically examine interdisciplinary fields to become a force of new knowledge and ideas in the world.

All graduate programs at The New School for Social research can be completed full-time or part-time on our New York City campus. Competitive merit-based scholarships are available in all departments -- in recent years, 85% of master’s students have received merit scholarships at The New School for Social Research.

Change begins with a question. What will you ask?

Program highlights

  • 30-credit interdisciplinary program.
  • Develop contextual thinking and writing skills across multiple humanities disciplines in a positive, judgment-free environment.
  • Design your own curriculum and engage with leading scholars, journalists, and intellectual writers.

Why the New School?

The New School for Social Research was founded in 1919 as a home for progressive thinkers, and housed the University in Exile in 1933, providing an academic haven for scholars persecuted in Nazi Europe. The school became the foundation for a comprehensive university – The New School – and continues the legacy of critical thought, civic engagement, and academic freedom today.

Perspectives on History and Practice

The MA History of Design and Curatorial Studies curriculum offers practical and theoretical instruction in researching and displaying interiors and design objects such as furniture, ceramics, metalwork, textiles, and works in other media. New courses on curatorial studies and courses exploring the history of design in social and cultural context reflect the program’s broadened scope and relevance. They can also study abroad or pursue their degree at Parsons Paris, benefiting from our relationship with Musée des Arts Décoratifs, our partner museum.

Hands-On Experience

Students complete the 42 required credits in two years of full-time study or three to four years of part-time study. At the renovated Cooper Hewitt, graduate students have opportunities to curate exhibitions, create programming for the public, and produce interpretive materials — all of which provide essential hands-on experience in museum and curatorial practices. Access to the Smithsonian’s Design Library, New School library holdings, and the library consortium enriches object-based research.

This prestigious two-year master’s degree program, which Parsons offers in conjunction with Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, brings an object-focused, practice-based approach to the study of European and American decorative arts and design dating from the Renaissance to the present. Housed for more than 30 years at Cooper Hewitt — the only U.S. museum devoted exclusively to historical and contemporary design — the program enables students to work directly with the museum’s collections and its curators, conservators, educators, and designers.

This program is part of Parsons’ School of Art and Design History and Theory (ADHT). Learn about the ADHT community and explore our blog to see what students, faculty, and alumni are doing in NYC and around the world.

Support for Broad Research Horizons

For-credit internships enable students to explore professions in museums, auction houses, and galleries and on new online platforms. Also available are a limited number of master’s curatorial fellowships at Cooper Hewitt, which provide partial tuition remission, as well as tuition support from the Lee B. Anderson Memorial Foundation, whose mission is to support programs that advance the understanding of and appreciation for the decorative arts. In addition, MA students can apply for paid teaching assistantships. Parsons’ School of Art and Design History and Theory (ADHT) programs reflect the faculty’s expertise in areas including art and design methodology and philosophy, design criticism, cultural anthropology, sustainability, and material culture and are designed to provide students with opportunities to take related courses within ADHT. Students can take courses and participate in collaborative projects throughout Parsons and The New School, which open up new topics and areas of investigation in curatorial practice and historical research.

Future Opportunities

Students graduate prepared to join alumni who work in some of the world’s most prestigious nonprofit, commercial, cultural, and academic institutions. Graduates obtain specialist and management positions in auction houses, museums, and historic houses; enter fields such as criticism and journalism, consulting and e-commerce, and teaching; and pursue advanced study.
