Continuing Education

Continuing Education classes at Parsons offer students windows into new worlds, challenges to the traditional divisions between art and design disciplines, forums to make new friends, and launch pads for careers.

Who Should Come

Our non-degree courses are open to all students, regardless of their experience level. Untrained professionals may attend Continuing Education courses as a preliminary step toward enrollment in an Associate in Applied Science degree program. Working artists and designers are encouraged to consider Continuing Education as a resource for learning the new technologies and creating game-changing concepts in their fields.

We also encourage local residents to take Continuing Education courses to sate their curiosity about art and design or to nurture their talents.
