  • In a rapidly changing world, continuing education opportunities at Parsons enable you to explore new worlds and stay abreast of emerging technologies. Offered online and on campus, Parsons courses and certificates are a springboard for professional advancement, and many of our alumni have parlayed their experiences here into all-new careers and entrepreneurial opportunities. Available to working artists and professionals as well as students of all levels, these opportunities provide an ideal academic and social environment to fulfill your goals and expand your network of collaborators.

  • Parsons offers hundreds of non-degree continuing education courses — on campus or online. We offer the variety of subject areas that you would expect from the foremost art and design school in the United States, including fashion, fine arts, graphic and digital design, interior design, and management and leadership. Course completion can be counted toward one of our certificate programs.

  • Parsons’ non-credit certificates equip working professionals with the tools you need to advance your career, in as few as three courses. More flexible and less rigorous than standard university degree programs, the certificate programs are part-time courses of study with no entrance requirements. Some students are new to art and design; others enroll to expand their skills and strengthen their portfolios.  

  • Parsons Executive Education offers an array of interdisciplinary open-enrollment programs that connect mid- and senior-level executives to Parsons’ world-renowned faculty. By learning with industry disruptors and like-minded peers, our students advance their skills and prepare to lead innovation.
