The New School offers degrees, certificates, and individual courses online to students like you all over the world.
And through an online learning environment available 24 hours a day, you have the flexibility to take classes when and where your schedule permits.
You might be surprised, but online classes are not so different from the university’s on-site classes—which are typically small in size and big on discussion. The seminar-style of teaching translates especially well to the web, where even the shyest of students can participate with ease.
If you are taking an online class for degree credit, you’ll be happy to know that all online courses are drawn from the university’s curriculum and are designed to integrate with the rest of your program of study. Indeed, you might even have the same professor or classmates online that you would have on campus.
More than 200 online classes taught by New School professors are available annually, and some can be taken for degree credit or on a non-credit basis. Online courses are offered in many areas of study including digital design, English language studies, fine art, graphic arts, humanities, interior design, fashion marketing and merchandising, management, media studies and film, social sciences, and writing.
The university began offering online courses and programs in 1994 with the support of grants from FIPSE, ATT, Citibank, and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. The New School and its degree programs are fully accredited by the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. Its credits and degrees are recognized and accepted by other accredited colleges, universities, and professional schools throughout the United States. The New School, a privately supported institution, is chartered as a university by the Regents of the State of New York.
