Available programs

The New School's creative and critical master's and PhD degree offerings include programs in art and design at Parsons School of Design, the social sciences at The New School for Social Research, classical music and drama at our College of Performing Arts, and management, policy, media, creative writing, and international affairs at the Schools of Public Engagement. Integrating in-class and in-the-field work, these programs guide graduate students through convention-defying courses of study.

Many classes are held in the evening to accommodate busy schedules, and several programs can be completed partly or entirely online. In addition, the university’s growing series of graduate minors enable students to expand their interests and explore the connections between disciplines by providing structured pathways through which they can immerse themselves in subjects outside of their primary field of study.
