    Yes. You participate in a weekly schedule of real-time class sessions held using a combination of the Canvas Learning Management System and video conferencing.

    Flexible schedule for working professionals

    International students are welcome to pursue the online degree program but should be aware that F-1 or J-1 visas are not available for students who pursue this format.

    Interaction with classmates

    You come to campus for weekend classes and engage in group work throughout each semester. 

    You attend a weekly class session held in real-time and engage in group work with your cohort throughout each semester.

    Access to on-campus events, resources, and facilities

    You have full access to all events and program-related facilities at Parsons and The New School.

    You have access to digital libraries and, when in NYC, to all on-site facilities and on-campus events.
