Parsons School of Design has offered students innovative approaches to education since its founding in 1896. Today Parsons is 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.
Parsons School of Fashion has trained five generations of designers who have shaped the global industry. Employing design thinking and creative problem-solving strategies, students explore form, silhouette, material, and process — including social and environmental imperatives — to create beautiful, sustainable, and responsible fashion for a complex and evolving field.
Across Parsons, undergraduate and graduate programs immerse students in focused training, interdisciplinary inquiry, and practice-based collaborative learning. Creators and scholars master established art and design fields and advance emerging ones while studying a range of university disciplines.
