The Interior Design from Parsons School of Design - The New School prepares you for graduate studies, particularly in the allied fields of Parsons’ School of Constructed Environments: architecture, industrial design, and lighting design.
In 1906, Frank Alvah Parsons established the country’s first interior design curriculum, framing the field as an intellectually rigorous creative force in everyday life. Modern American interior design was both invented at Parsons in the early 20th century and redefined as a social engaged practice at the end of the last century. Today this research-based, design-intensive major from The New School gives you a solid foundation for careers in which you create comfortable, imaginative, and intelligently designed interiors. It also prepares you for graduate studies, particularly in the allied fields of Parsons’ School of Constructed Environments: architecture, industrial design, and lighting design.
This Interior Design program is part of Parsons' School of Constructed Environments (SCE).
A leader in interior design education, Parsons takes a research-oriented approach to the creation of physical spaces. Students work in small groups designing a range of interiors. Graduates are prepared to enter established design and architecture studios, open their own design practices, and work as designers and consultants with public and private institutions.

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.
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.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, Studyportals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
