About

  • The New School's Bachelor's Program for Adults and Transfer Students is deeply rooted in the goal of lifelong higher learning articulated by the founders of The New School in 1919. In 1943, The New School began offering a bachelor's degree program for transfer students and adults to address the educational needs of returning WWII veterans. Today, our dedication to that mission continues in a program that offers exceptional services and an innovative curriculum to nearly 1,000 adult students in New York City and online.
