The New School BPAT Stats, Info and Facts

Located in Greenwich Village in the heart of New York City, The New School is the only comprehensive university housing a world-famous design school, a premier liberal arts college, a renowned performing arts college, a legendary social research school, and many more schools and programs designed for students of every age and stage of life.

Imagine a university where scholars, artists and designers find the support they need to challenge convention and fearlessly create positive change in the world. Imagine a community where walls between disciplines are dissolved, so journalists collaborate with designers, architects with social researchers, media specialists with activists, poets with musicians. Imagine an intellectual and creative haven that never has and never will settle for status quo. The New School is just such a university community, attracting students from all over the world to its home in the heart of Greenwich Village. Founded in 1919 by those who imagined a school that would rethink the purpose of higher education, today The New School offers more than 10,000 students areas of study across more than 135 undergraduate and graduate degree programs. No matter what area of study students pursue, they discover a unique form of creative problem solving that will forever change the way they investigate and create - relentlessly questioning convention, collaborating across disciplines and taking risks. For undergraduates, The New School offers programs in art and design, liberal arts and the performing arts at: Parsons School of Design, Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts, and the College of Performing Arts, which includes Mannes School of Music, the School of Jazz and the School of Drama.

Bachelor's Program for Adults and Transfers at The New School

The New School offers bachelor's degrees for transfer students and adults seeking an alternative to the traditional four-year undergraduate college experience.

Many undergraduates come to The New School to complete their education after several years' absence from college. Others transfer in from a two-year college or vocational education program. Every program provides an extensive rigorous curriculum that will build a strong educational foundation for career advancement or graduate school.

Most of our students are working adults who need a college that can accommodate their busy lives. Part-time students are very welcome, and almost all courses that meet on campus in Greenwich Village are scheduled on evenings and weekends. We also offer many courses online, and it is possible to complete some of our degrees entirely online without coming to New York City.

With access to the resources of a leading New York City university, an esteemed faculty dedicated to the principle of lifelong learning and to working with nontraditional undergraduates, and a wide range of networking, internship, and civic engagement opportunities, our students enjoy a rich and unique college experience that they can tailor to their individual needs.
