Students learn to challenge convention and collaborate on work that can improve people’s lives in direct and fundamental ways. Students arrive with diverse interests, perspectives, and backgrounds; they graduate prepared to creatively and critically address the complexities of life in the 21st century.Parsons is a division of The New School, a progressive urban university committed to interdisciplinary study.

Imagine a university where scholars, artists, and designers find the support they need to challenge convention and fearlessly create positive change in the world.
