Beginning in fall 2013, Parsons Paris* will offer bachelor's and master's degree programs taught in English and based on the curriculum and learning opportunities that attract students to Parsons' New York campus. Applicants accepted into Parsons Paris programs become part of the academic community of The New School, a leading university in New York City. They can supplement their art and design coursework with classes in business, urban studies, environmental studies, and other subjects online or in New York.
A Parsons Approach to Education, Reflected in the City of Lights
A world capital of cultural and intellectual activity, the city of Paris is an essential part of the Parsons Paris educational experience. The new campus is located in the first arrondissement, surrounded by the city's many museums, ateliers, archives, historic landmarks, and venerable design houses. The program faculty -- professionals from the European and New York art and design communities -- will make full use of the setting, connecting students with local creative practitioners and cultural and civic organizations. Like their counterparts in New York, Parsons Paris students will use the city as a laboratory, collaborating on creative projects and exploring ways to apply art and design to the challenges of urban life.
Campus and Facilities
Parsons Paris is located in a newly renovated historic building at 45 rue Saint-Roch, a short walk from the Louvre, the Palais Garnier, Gaite Lyrique media arts center, and Notre Dame cathedral. Classes will be held here, in the nearby Arts Decoratifs museum, and at locations throughout the city. Course projects and collaborations will bring students into contact with the city's signature creative agencies, exhibitions, and industry-related events, such as the influential Maison & Objet design trade show and Paris Fashion Week.
*The Paris branch campus are under review by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) and the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD).]
