Overview

The Integrated Design program of The New School gives students opportunities to take courses offered by any program in the School of Design Strategies and throughout Parsons and the rest of the university, allowing you to develop collaborative/cooperative creative practices exploring more than one design discipline. Integrated Design is a self-directed liberal design program, enabling you to tailor your studies according to your academic and career goals. You also have access to The New School’s resources, libraries, and spaces for research and experimentation. In art and design history and theory courses and related studio classes, you acquire essential research, writing, and critical reasoning skills and develop conceptual foundations for a life of creative inquiry.

Future Opportunities

Graduates are prepared for careers in service design, urban design, fashion design, entrepreneurship, sustainability management, consulting, and fine arts and careers related to minors offered at Parsons.
