The New School,

Since its founding in 1919, The New School has redrawn and redefined the boundaries of intellectual and creative thought as a preeminent academic center. Its rigorous, multidimensional approach to education dissolves walls between disciplines and helps nurture progressive minds. Students have the academic freedom to shape their unique, individual paths for a complex and rapidly changing world.


At The New School scholars, artists, and designers come together to challenge conventions and create positive change. Colleges include Parsons School of Design, Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts, the College of Performing Arts, The New School for Social Research, the Schools of Public Engagement, and Parsons Paris.

The university’s multidimensional and integrated academic approach is designed to foster deep critical thinking and creative problem-solving. Students are afforded the freedom to explore and chart their own personalized path of study. This is where hard work and autonomy meet. The result is more than knowledge; it is students actualizing their potential and their vision.


The New School is the only university where a world-renowned design school comes together with premier undergraduate and graduate programs and colleges to seek out ways to create a more just, more beautiful, and better-designed world. With leading-edge faculty and world-renowned alumni, New School is committed to developing students who will have an impact on the world and solve the most pressing social issues of our time.
