Parsons Paris

  • IMG- Parsons Paris Global Learning

    Practicing art and design requires an understanding of the world as a place interconnected by technological, environmental, economic, and cultural networks. To prepare students to work in global contexts, Parsons Paris offers learning opportunities that connect to the main campus in New York City through online courses.

    Global Connections

    Parsons' curriculum offers an array of global learning opportunities, including study abroad options, projects with external partners overseas, and classes that position creative and entrepreneurial activity in an international framework.

    Overseas Initiatives

    Parsons Paris is a European hub linked to new academic centers opening in Shanghai and Mumbai. By linking major cities, our global initiatives are building learning networks that will connect the world's major urban centers of art and design. These initiatives join our existing study abroad offerings, online courses, and educational partnerships in Europe, Asia, and Latin America. The plan allows us to share our proven educational methodology and give students opportunities to learn and work in real-world settings. Our goal is to develop students' global awareness, cultural literacy, and familiarity with the systems that shape creative, humanitarian, and entrepreneurial endeavors around the world.

    A Model for Curricula in India

    Global in theory and in practice, first-rate design education involves an understanding of socially focused design education all over the world. To develop its expanding network of global hubs, Parsons has partnered with the Indian School of Design and Innovation (ISDI) to open a school in the dynamic city of Mumbai.

    Parsons is currently contributing undergraduate and graduate curricula and faculty to augment ISDI's academic offerings. 

    As ISDI's course offerings expand, Parsons students will be eligible to study in this emerging world design center. Parsons Mumbai will serve as the institutional base for study abroad options, visiting faculty, and creative collaborations with ISDI and Parsons scholars in New York and around the world.
