Degree: Non-Profit Management
Graduation Year: 2015

The New School has been an amazing experience that I am sure will lead me to great things in the future.

Degree: Art & Design
Graduation Year: 2015

Great network of alumni and fantastic professors. However, support for equipment and spaces are surprisingly lacking -- there are very few spaces that students can use to showcase their work. There are not many courses that prepare you for life after graduation. However, the connections for internships are amazing, so you must be proactive to excel in this competitive environment.

This is a great school for those who like to think outside the box.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

The workload is intense but the program is so good, it's a perfect combination of the two areas (design and technology) we learn to code and to think. The only con I see so far is that it's super expensive.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2016

The main pros are the program's encouragement of critical thinking and availability of professors for enlightening discussions. The main con is the high cost of the program and the limited availability of financial aid.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

Excellent educational value and support from colleagues as well as faculty. Non-traditional program provides great insight into alternative methods of urban practice and intervention into current, real-time urban processes.

Degree: Fashion
Graduation Year: 2015

MA program would cultivates the large-scale analytically research needed to resolve my theoretical interests. So, like the equilibrium between  practice and  theory, or fashion and science, Master‘s degree studies  in  fashion theory  creates a unique intersection  at which  I could  further navigate towards understanding and explaining  all aspects of  Fashion Industry.

Degree: Art & Design
Graduation Year: 2016

Like real estate everything boils down to location, location, location. When I made a career change to the arts I needed an environment where I could immerse myself in all things art. My options were limitless at Parsons with a NY campus and Paris campus to choose from. I have access and a network all over the world.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2018

The NSSR is a great school for a social science grad student, the only problem is the poor funding opportunities. PhD students are supposed to be fully funded. Doing a PhD is a full time job!
