Since our founding in 1919, The New School (TNS) has redrawn and redefined the boundaries of intellectual and creative thought as a preeminent academic center. Our rigorous, multidimensional approach to education dissolves walls between disciplines and helps nurture progressive minds.
At our university, students have the academic freedom to shape their unique, individual paths for a complex and rapidly changing world. Our colleges include Parsons School of Design, Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts, the College of Performing Arts, The New School for Social Research, the Schools of Public Engagement, and Parsons Paris. The New School is committed to diversity in the workplace.
