Christoph Cox, Dean
Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts
Eugene Lang College demonstrates how vital and important a liberal arts education can be in the 21st century. Lang is a progressive college embedded within The New School, a creative and vibrant university in the heart of New York City. Our open curriculum
invites students to chart their own educational pathways with guided support. Faculty and staff advise students in discovering the courses, civic engagement opportunities, internships, and events that will prepare them to thrive in a complex, ever-changing
world and to make it a more just and joyful place to live.
Addressing the urgent issues we face today, the interdisciplinary offerings at Lang affirm the deep connection between theory and practice—between the conceptual frameworks that challenge the status quo and the lived experience that manifests and modifies
those frameworks. The faculty at Lang are world-class scholars, artists, public intellectuals, and working professionals who collaborate with students in small seminars and in the city just beyond the classroom.
I’m proud to lead this dynamic community and welcome you to explore all we have to offer.
