Lang offers affordable, short-term programs taught by Lang instructors during academic breaks. Past programs have examined avant-garde theater at an international fringe festival; contemporary music history, with an excursion to a techno music parade; democracy and diversity; educational and therapeutic use of visual arts; and classical European literature and music.
Because of special exchange agreements with certain institutions, Lang students can study abroad for a semester or year. They do not pay the institutions’ tuition; instead, they pay tuition to Lang and keep their institutional financial aid from The New School. Students can use earned credits toward their Lang degree.
