About Parsons School of Design

Parsons School of Design has offered students innovative approaches to education since its founding in 1896. Today we’re the only American art and design school within a comprehensive university, The New School, which also houses a rigorous liberal arts college and a progressive performing arts school. Our undergraduate and graduate programs, offered through Parsons’ five schools, immerse students in focused training, interdisciplinary inquiry, and practice-based collaborative learning. Here creators and scholars master established art and design fields and advance emerging ones while studying a range of university disciplines.

Campus information

Parsons School of Design has an innovative academic structure composed of five schools: the School of Art and Design History and Theory; the School of Art, Media, and Technology; the School of Constructed Environments; the School of Design Strategies; and the School of Fashion.

The five schools house more than thirty degree programs as well as programs for young, adult, and professional learners. Through this multiple-school structure, Parsons is better able to effect social change while continuing its tradition of challenging conventional thinking.

New York City is home to Parsons’ main campus and a range of creative practitioners and industries.
