The Design and Technology program brings together a diverse community of independent thinkers who work on projects rooted in a desire to understand the broader social context. The working professionals who make up the faculty bring practical experience and cutting-edge skills, focussing on exploration and experimentation in the classroom. As a student here, you will be a creative thinker who learns how to solve challenging problems with design and code.
A Parsons education isn't just about working in isolation in a studio; it's about joining a community in New York City—the creative capital of the world. The Design and Technology lab is where undergraduate students work, play, inspire and collaborate with one another. As students expand their creative community through internships and collaborative projects, they establish relationships that often endure long past graduation.
As a student in the Design and Technology program, you are encouraged to explore many areas. You can develop knowledge in game design, physical computing, installation art, performative sound interfaces and other creative technologies that include algorithmic and computer art. Every BFA DT student learns to code.
Design and Technology is actively involved in the art and design community. Graduates pursue highly sought after positions in interactive and social media, film, television, game design, advertising, installation arts and film.
