Admission Liaisons

Admission Liaisons are senior New School for Social Research graduate students who have been appointed by the Office of Admission to provide prospective applicants with information about the nature of academic life in their respective departments. They are available to discuss the kinds of research and study that can be pursued in their programs, the nature of particular courses, student life at The New School, and similar matters. They can also arrange for class visits so that prospective students can experience at first hand the type of educational opportunities provided by The New School for Social Research.

The Admission Liaisons can be contacted initially at the email addresses below. Thereafter prospective applicants can continue to communicate with them via email or arrange for a telephone conversation or an in-person visit. We are sure that you will find them friendly, informative, and helpful.

Questions regarding application and admission policies and procedures should be directed to The New School for Social Research Office of Admission. Please email or contact Henry Watkin, Associate Director of Admission, by phone at 212.229.5150 ext. 3011 or by email at
