Mannes and The New School
Mannes is a division of The New School, an intellectually rich and dynamic institution, renowned for its excellence, diversity, and integrity. This affiliation affords Mannes students the educational advantages of access to a broad liberal arts curriculum with offerings in the humanities, fine arts, and social sciences.
Founded in 1919 with commitments to lifelong learning, examining society, and artistic and academic freedom, The New School became America's first university for adults. It was here that the first university-level courses on race and Black culture, urban housing, film history, and women's studies were taught. Today The New School is a provocative urban university with undergraduate, graduate, and professional degree programs.
