The BAFA Student Handbook contains a variety of academic information for students enrolled in one of the BA/BFA dual degree programs, including requirements for completing Lang majors and paths of study and sample five-year plans for each major at Parsons and Jazz.

To navigate the handbook, scroll down to the Table of Contents on the second page and select a topic.

Information for New School Students Considering a BAFA Program
Students currently enrolled in one of the three divisions of The New School that offer BAFA—Eugene Lang College, Parsons, or Jazz—who are interested in the dual-degree program should first review the Guide to Applying to the BAFA Program and then complete the Internal BAFA Application.

BAFA Program Advising
To help them planning a program of study and meet the academic requirements of both divisions, all students in a BAFA program have two advisors: a faculty advisor at Lang and a departmental advisor at Parsons or academic administrator at Jazz.

Also, there are BAFA point people in each division who are well versed in the program and can assist BAFA students who encounter problems at the divisional level or with the BAFA program in general:
