About

Anthropology is the study of human beings and the social and cultural worlds they inhabit. Whether conducting their research in cities or villages, laboratories or rain forests, refugee camps or colonial archives, anthropologists are attentive to the ideas, affects, practices, values, and institutions they encounter. As an Anthropology student at Eugene Lang College from The New School, you'll explore a wide range of topics such as race and classification; money and value; human rights; migration, war, and violence; drug cultures; kinship, sex, and gender; and art, design, and urban life.

Students can study anthropology as a major (BA, Anthropology), a minor, or a self-designed major (BA or BS, Liberal Arts).

Career Paths

Education at Eugene Lang College is designed to develop well-rounded and engaged citizens who are thoughtful, articulate, and creative. Anthropology majors go on to pursue advanced studies in anthropology, organizational psychology, and other disciplines in the social sciences and humanities and careers in law, health care, business, social and public service, international and nongovernmental organizations, marketing and market research, museums, and other fields.

Funding

The New School maintains an extensive program of scholarships and grants-in-aid based on academic merit and demonstrated financial need. Awards are usually made as part of the admission process. Institutional scholarships may be combined with government supported grants and loans in a single financial aid package. Scholarships and grants are normally applied to tuition costs. They can range from several hundred dollars to full tuition and do not require repayment.

Scholarships may be reduced or canceled if requested applications and verification documents are not received by the stated deadlines. Need-based scholarships do not automatically renew for the same amount in subsequent years. Changes in need calculations, late FAFSA submission, or refusal of a subsidized student loan may result in a modified award.
Undergraduate Students
  • U.S. citizens and permanent residents must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for a financial aid package.
  • International students in the NSPE undergraduate program or a Parsons AAS program must file the Undergraduate International Student Scholarship Applications to be considered for financial aid.
  • There is no separate aid application for other international undergraduates.

All undergraduate students are considered for scholarships based on their academic merit. Availability of institutional merit-based scholarships varies according to academic program. Students who file FAFSA or the Undergraduate International Student Scholarship Application will be considered for institutional scholarships based on merit and demonstrated financial need. U.S. citizens and eligible residents may qualify for U.S. government and New York State fellowships and grants based on merit and financial need.

StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
