The New School awards Bachelor of Arts degrees to Eugene Lang College students who successfully complete 120 credits of study as described below. The degrees offered are a Bachelor of Arts in liberal arts, and Bachelor of Arts in Culture and Media, in Philosophy, and in Psychology. Other Bachelor of Arts degrees may be available in the future. Enrollment in other than registered or otherwise aproved prorams may jeopardize the student’s eligibility for certain student aid awards.
Transfer students must complete a minimum of 60 credits at The New School, and the 90-credit liberal arts requirement is pro-rated based on the number of semesters a transfer student spent at other institutions. All transfer students, regardless of class standing, must take three Lang seminars in their first semester at the college.
Transfer students may use up to three courses taken at other institutions to fulfill the area of study requirements, if those courses are approved by the chair as meeting the requirements*
Students admitted with 30 to 44 credits may be permitted to apply one course.
Students with 45 to 60 credits may be permitted to apply up to three courses.
*Transfer credits often do not count toward the requirements for areas of study. Transfer students with upper-level credits by transfer must have their courses evaluated by the chair of the area of study most closely corresponding to the intended transferred courses. Syllabi of transferred courses are generally required.
studying abroad may take up to three courses toward their area of study at the host institution, subject to preliminary review and final approval on their return by the chair.
