The New School designed the Bachelor’s Program for Adults and Transfer Students specifically for adults and transfer students seeking an alternative to the traditional four-year experience. Students have the freedom and flexibility to tailor their degree to their unique story, and
pave a path that prepares them to achieve their goals.
Students may entirely self-design their
degree across disciplines in the liberal arts or choose one of our
majors. Whichever degree path our students choose, faculty, advisors, and staff support them in incorporating their experiences and voices into their degree.
