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.
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.
NYC, your extended classroom, is home to design and tech innovators who serve as instructors, critics, internship hosts, and thesis advisors. Institutions including
International Center of Photography, and
Cooper Hewitt enrich your development. AMT partnerships — including
Parsons’ state-of-the-art resources promote innovation and collaboration. The Arnold Hall Multimedia Laboratory provides 600 networked workstations and servers for Web, print, audio, and animation projects. Specialized facilities support media ranging from photography and printmaking to physical computing to 3D prototyping. Our
research institutes spark new ideas and learning. Visit
