Welcome to the New School in New York City, a university founded in 1919 by a group of intellectuals looking for a new model of education.
Our colleges and programs offer a space designed for critical inquiry, creativity, and experimentation that defy convention and help create a more just, more beautiful, and better-designed world.
The New School’s undergraduate degree programs include art and design at Parsons School of Design, liberal arts at Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts, and classical and contemporary music and drama at our College of Performing Arts.
Our students learn across disciplines, fearlessly take on new challenges, and engage with the most pressing issues facing our society. This comprehensive education fosters a multidimensional understanding of the world and inspires groundbreaking investigations and collaborations.
