Curriculum

BFA, BS, and BBA Programs: First-Year Curricula

Freshman students entering Parsons share a common first-year experience. The same course sequence constitutes the first year of every BFA and BS program, providing a foundational experience that familiarizes students with the tools, methods, and skills of art and design. A similar course sequence applies for BBA students, with a few exceptions specific to that degree. These required courses provides a core learning experience, the outcomes of which are fundamental to continuing undergraduate study at Parsons. Many of the required courses also offer an array of course options, allowing students the flexibility to create their own pathway through the first year based on their own interests.
