  • Graduate Academics

  • Our graduate programs go beyond mainstream thought and practices, fostering intellectual inquiry and creative mastery. Master's and doctoral students work with renowned faculty who are scholars, practitioners, and mentors. Together they defy academic orthodoxy, take intellectual risks, publish groundbreaking research, and contribute to emerging fields.

    Graduate students now also have the opportunity to pursue one of The New School's graduate minors, structured pathways of study that immerse students in disciplines outside of their primary field and broaden their skills and career options.
