Student & Graduate Reviews

"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."

"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."
