  • TRANSCEND DISCIPLINARY BOUNDARIES

    Programs taught in Parsons’ School of Art, Media, and Technology (AMT) — illustration, fine arts, photography, graphic design, data visualization, and design and technology — cultivate your visual and cultural literacy through integrative curricula. You develop as a maker and thinker who unites disciplines taught throughout Parsons and the rest of The New School in sophisticated work fostering the public good.

    COLLABORATE CREATIVELY

    Collaboration activates the merging of disciplines spurred by technology, resulting in sophisticated communication and social engagement by the AMT community. Students throughout AMT work together in Collaboration Studio courses and school-organized projects. They create exhibitions and programming with the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center, the Vera List Center for Art and Politics, and at venues around the world.
