The guiding purpose of this interdisciplinary curriculum is to awaken an interest in and love for exploring and criticizing the intellectual traditions that form the basis of understanding modern humanity.
Our sense of self, what we consider important, how we pursue knowledge and life, even our tastes and inclinations are all issues that have long been studied in the field of philosophy. But philosophy also seeks to address the need, even the responsibility, to challenge and rethink what is traditionally accepted to be true about who and what we are.
While it offers the atmosphere and intimacy of a small college, Eugene Lang College is part of The New School, a major progressive university in New York City.

Using New York City as your laboratory, you’ll gain knowledge, skills, and opportunities to address society’s challenges.

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.
