Dual City Summer Program


Parsons The New School for Design and Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design are collaborating to offer several exciting two-week and four-week programs.


New York and London are vibrant urban centers that offer abundant learning opportunities in art and design. Each city is home to a variety of architecture, fashion, finance, and educational institutions, providing students with direct access to exceptional models to study and engage with firsthand.

The Dual City Summer Program offers nondegree, noncredit courses open to all adult students, regardless of their experience. The short, intensive format of these courses allows students to immerse themselves in the creative life of New York and London, explore the latest trends, and collaborate with fellow art and design students while building a network of contacts from around the world.

Our partner institution for these courses, Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design, is internationally renowned for the excellence of its students, staff, and graduates. Central Saint Martins has an outstanding reputation for educating short course, foundation, undergraduate, postgraduate, and research students. Students of all disciplines at Central Saint Martins are challenged to experiment, innovate, take risks, ask questions, and discover in a supportive learning environment as they develop their creative practice.
