When & Where
The New School - Admitted Graduate Student Events
The New School is a legendary university in New York City, now comprising seven academic divisions. Founded in 1919 by a group of progressive educators, The New School aspired to be everything the "old school" was not—open to dissenting opinions and the avant-garde in scholarship and the arts. It found a home in Greenwich Village and a unique place in the intellectual history of the United States.
Today students from throughout the United States and around the world choose The New School for an education that requires critical analysis, active participation, and experimentation with ideas. New School students and faculty take creative, interdisciplinary approaches to complex conceptual and real-world issues. Learning is driven by open discussion in small classes and immersion in the latest currents of ideas and practices in the greatest city in the world. Our faculty includes leaders and innovators in art and design, social science, liberal arts, management and public policy, media, and performing arts.
The university also is actively engaged with the broader community through its wide-ranging continuing education programs and thoughtful—and thought-provoking—public programs.
