About Parsons School of Design: For more than a century, Parsons School of Design in New York City has been inspired by the transformative potential of design. Today, the school’s groundbreaking academic programs carry forward that mission, making Parsons the number one design school in the U.S. and among the top three globally.
Parsons is the only major American art and design school within a comprehensive university — The New School — which also houses a rigorous liberal arts college, an outstanding performing arts school, a legendary graduate school, and other renowned programs.
At Parsons, you discover that fashion, design, and art have the capacity to disrupt the status quo and spark the change needed in the world today. They can be employed to confront climate change, address race relations, and transform businesses and public services. Here, becoming an artist, designer, or design strategist means working across disciplines, learning to collaborate, and questioning every assumption in order to create more reflectively and responsibly.
Parsons offers renowned practice-based undergraduate, graduate, and professional associate's degree programs as well as non-credit courses, certificates, and executive education programs.
