Win a Bachelors Degree Scholarship in The New School Competition

The New School was founded over a hundred years ago in New York City by a group of American intellectuals. The main purpose was to build a new type of academic institution where the students and faculty could address the society problems honestly and freely and without the interference of any other organization or group. The name was later changed to “The New School for Social Research” which was again reverted back to its original name afterwards. The graduate school grew rapidly over time and it evolved into a University with 7 colleges under it. Here are the complete names of the seven colleges:

  • Parsons The New School for Design
  • Mannes College The New School for Music
  • The New School for Public Engagement
  • The New School for Social Research
  • Eugene Lang College The New School for Liberal Arts
  • The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music
  • The New School for Drama
