COVID-19 Update for Prospective Students and Families:

Over the last year, the COVID-19 pandemic has compelled The New School to reimagine our educational experience and led us to deliver academic instruction online. Now that vaccines have been approved and distribution has begun, we have reopened our New York City campus in fall 2021 and returned to predominantly in-person teaching and learning in undergraduate and graduate degree programs.

From The New School for Social Research

The New School for Social Research (NSSR) is a graduate institution in the heart of New York City. It generates progressive scholarship and historically grounded education in the social sciences and philosophy. Its ten departments and programs offer masters and doctoral degrees. Interdisciplinary centers and institutes housed at The New School for Social Research provide further opportunities for deep inquiry and innovative collaborations, particularly at the intersection of social theory, policy, and design.

The New School for Social Research believes that research and pedagogy should advance economic justice, promote an understanding of change, and train the next generation to influence public debate. Its commitment to progressive values, academic freedom, rigorous scholarship, and critical theory in the tradition of the Frankfurt School lies at the heart of The New School's history and draws upon the vital legacy of the University in Exile.
