• BA/BFA Dual Degree

  • BA/BFA
  • The New School’s BA/BFA dual-degree program (called BAFA for short) is designed for students who want a comprehensive education in liberal arts and music or the arts. Students who are interested in this pathway must apply to complete the five-year curriculum (168-180 credits, depending on the chosen majors), which leads to the award of both a BA from Eugene Lang College and a BFA from either Parsons School of Design or the School of Jazz at the College of Performing Arts. Students who choose to pursue this pathway receive careful advisement to ensure that they meet the requirements of both degrees.

    To pursue the BAFA, students must be admitted to both colleges (Eugene Lang College and either Parsons School of Design or the School of Jazz at the College of Performing Arts). Students may apply during the initial application to The New School or after having completed up to one year of study at Eugene Lang College, Parsons School of Design, or the School of Jazz at the College of Performing Arts.​
