PARSONS, THE NEW SCHOOL FOR DESIGN

The New York college

 

Parsons is an important American fashion school, in the last 10 years important and famous designers have been formed.
Many of these are now part of the faculty.
Most teachers work in areas where they teach. Students speak highly of their instructors. What’s more, the school has partnered with many resellers and companies with the aim of getting student work.

 

The future of The New School will be shaped by the core values that have defined our past: academic freedom, tolerance, and experimentation.

Mission

The new school prepares students to understand, contribute and succeed in a rapidly changing society, and thus make the world a better and fairer place. We will ensure that our students develop both the skills a solid humanities education provides and the essential skills for success and leadership in the emerging creative economy. We will also bring in the generation of practical and theoretical knowledge that allows people to better understand our world and improve conditions for local and global communities.

Vision

We are and will be a university where the design and social research unit approaches the issues they study of our time, such as democracy, urbanization, technological change, economic empowerment, sustainability, migration, and globalization. It will be the preeminent intellectual and creative center for effective engagement in a world that increasingly requires better designed objects, communications, systems and organizations to meet social needs.

Our vision aligns with shifts in the economy, society and the global environment, which animate our mission and our values:

  • Creativity, innovation, and a desire to challenge the status quo, both in what and how it is taught and in the intellectual ambitions of the School itself
  • Social commitment, orienting students’ academic experience to help them become critically engaged citizens dedicated to problem solving and contributing to the public good.

The new school must embrace these principles and innovate to address shifts in the economy, society and the global environment that require individuals to grapple with complex problems, pursue more fluid and flexible career paths, and collaboratively create change.

educational approach

We will accomplish our mission by extending The New School’s legacy as a non-traditional, agile and change-responsive academic community that:

  • It focuses on and engages with contemporary critical issues
  • Assign priority humanity and culture in the design of systems and environments to improve the human condition, an approach that is based on design thinking and liberal, creative, and show business
  • Project-based learning puts it at the center of the educational experience
  • It takes full advantage of our New York City location and connectivity for urban centers worldwide.
