Degree: Musical Theatre
Graduation Year: 2010

Choosing The New School was the best decision I've made to date. The instruction I received from professors and the real world approach to coursework is what made my transition into my career seamless. This is not a school for someone who wants the traditional college experience. It's better and bigger than that because you're campus is New York City and the school makes sure you're immersed in that as well as the classes.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The New School is one of the top schools in the field of TESOL. Mostly all of the professors are noted pioneers in this field. The program is 30 credits and a student has the option of choosing one of two concentrations: Teaching or Curriculum Development.. The MA TESOL program at The New School offers classes online and on campus. The program was fairly rigorous and I was constantly busy with projects and assignments. I took one class online with Professor Pat Moran. Believe it or not, an online class is harder in some ways than an on campus class. The expectations in the MA TESOL program are extremely high as are the stakes, in my opinion. I am confident that my education at The New School will open many doors for me in the future. I am sure I have grown as an educator and my professors have provided me with the necessary tools to become a make a difference in the world.

Degree: Fashion/Apparel Design
Graduation Year: 2015

Overall, Parsons provided me with a fantastic education and a strong work ethic. The rigorous curriculum can be overwhelming at times, but it makes you that much more prepared for when you do graduate. There is not a lot of emphasis on the business side of the industry, so you have take it upon yourself to seek out courses in business for your electives. The program has been reformatted since I started. I luckily was on the old program, where you begin with "foundation" year taking all fine arts courses and history electives, and then went into my major in sophomore year. The new program is more conceptual and gives students more freedom with less structure. I personally think that it is really lacking in structure that is needed, but this also depends on the student. There are teachers that you will love in the program and some that you will not get along with. You just need to take everyone's feedback and use it with your work, and not take it personally.

As a creative person, The New School knows just what to do to guide you to sharpen your skills and hone in on your career choice. There is a lot offered that is optional and it is up to you to take advantage of as much as you can. It's very worth it.

Degree: Education, Other
Graduation Year: 2014

The MA TESOL degree program is an excellent program. It is better than most MA TESOL programs because of the caliber of the professors, which are some of the most noted in the field, and the curriculum offered. I was extremely impressed with the forward thinking in the pedagogy and methodology taught. This program is also one of the few that requires a practicum for teaching. For myself, it was wonderful to be able to study on campus as well as online. There is tremendous support given during your studies and after graduation. The support is life long stateside and abroad.
