    Parsons Summer Programs

    Summer is the time to tap into your creative side and discover something new about yourself.


    This July, Parsons School of Design is bringing its popular Summer Intensive Studies program online for the first time. Pre-College and College/Adult students can learn from Parsons' world-class faculty from anywhere in the world. Students explore art and design through engaging real-time interaction with Parsons faculty, including online demos, guided exercises, and feedback sessions.

    The online program runs from July 6 to July 24, with six hours of creative programming each day. The program features core classes, all for college credit, that focus on exploration of fine arts and design and portfolio development.

    New York or Paris?

    Our Summer Intensive Studies programs, which are offered in New York and Paris, are three-week-long bootcamps in art and design, open to pre-college students (16-18 years old) and college-level and adult students (19+ years old). 

    Out of an abundance of caution and in the best interest of our students, the university has canceled all on-campus programming in New York and Paris through August 2020.

This program prepares students to study for professional master's degrees or embark on rewarding design careers.
