Continuing Education

  • Continuing education classes at Parsons offer students a window on new worlds, challenges to the traditional divisions between art and design disciplines, forums in which to make new friends, and launchpads for newly defined careers.


    Our non-degree courses are open to all students, regardless of their level of experience. Working artists and designers are encouraged to consider Continuing Education as a means of learning new technologies and developing game-changing concepts in their fields. For the professional prepared to make the leap into design, Parsons Continuing Education courses can be a preliminary step toward a career change. These courses allow you to sample a new art or design discipline before deciding to enroll in one of our CE Certificate Programs or move on to an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree in Fashion Design, Fashion Marketing, Graphic Design, or Interior Design here at Parsons.  


    Fall 2016 registration is now open.
