Parsons Paris offers bachelor’s degree programs (BFA and BBA) based on the curriculum and learning opportunities that students at Parsons’ New York campus benefit from. Paris-based students become part of the academic community of The New School, a leading university in New York City. They can complement their art and design coursework with classes in business, urban studies, environmental studies, and other subjects online or in New York. Parsons Paris also offers summer programs and study abroad opportunities.
Students investigate a range of creative tools and methods, building a solid foundation for study and practice in their chosen discipline. They also take liberal arts courses to broaden their abilities as artists and designers. Classes are kept small to encourage collaboration. Instruction is in English, but students who are not already fluent in French will be enrolled in language courses, for which they will receive liberal arts credit. All students must demonstrate proficiency in French in order to graduate.
