Parsons School of Design offers an array of majors. Each major is an interdisciplinary space of study, where students are encouraged to pursue their research and practice alongside electives throughout the university. Students graduate with a BFA or BBA depending on their major, and are also able to minor in a field outside of their area of study, such as anthropology or creative coding. In addition to the BFA and BBA degrees, some students complete the BAFA program, meaning they earn both a BFA degree from Parsons and a BA degree from Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts.

Parsons School of Design has offered students innovative approaches to education since its founding in 1896. Today we’re 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. Our undergraduate and graduate programs, offered through Parsons’ five schools, immerse students in focused training, interdisciplinary inquiry, and practice-based collaborative learning. Here creators and scholars master established art and design fields and advance emerging ones while studying a range of university disciplines.
