Parsons School of Design is the only major design school embedded within a comprehensive university, The New School. At Parsons, artists, designers, and scholars learn to
devise design-led approaches to complex contemporary problems – from sustainability to social and economic inequalities to globalization in creative industries. The New School’s enlightened approach to design education results in a passionate commitment to improving all aspects of society through inquiry, radical ideas, iterative experimentation, and creative collaboration within Parsons and throughout the university. Students pursue degrees at Parsons’ home campus in New York City and at Parsons Paris. They also gain international experience taking courses online, with partner universities worldwide, or at one of The New School’s global academic centers in Paris, and Mumbai.
