This is the moment YOU REALIZE LIBERAL ARTS CAN CHANGE


Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts undergraduate programs

Discover a university dedicated to unleashing your creativity. The New School was founded in 1919 by a group of progressive intellectuals looking for a new, more relevant model of education. Today this comprehensive university in New York City is home to Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts, an academically rigorous liberal arts college. At Lang, students become a force of new ideas by asking the big questions, challenging assumptions, and developing their potential. They study and collaborate across all our schools and colleges, including a renowned design school, a stellar performing arts college, and world-famous graduate schools.

THE NEW SCHOOL LANG


IMAGINE A LIBERAL ARTS PROGRAM THAT IS BOTH RIGOROUS AND RELEVANT.

One where hard work meets real autonomy. Our unique liberal arts programs are designed for fiercely independent scholars. Our programs are reading and writing intensive and grounded in the scholarly development of critical thinking. But the hard work feels different here. That’s because our open curriculum gives you the freedom to explore exactly what is relevant to you.

WHAT IS NURTURED WITHIN SMALL, INTIMATE CLASSES?

SMALL SEMINARS

Studying liberal arts at Lang is made even more powerful thanks to our small seminars. • The Princeton Review named Lang the best college in the United States for encouraging debate and discussion. • Among national universities, The New School had the highest proportion of classes with fewer than 20 students, according to U.S. News & World Report (2015). LANG FACULTY

Lang faculty respect the independent learner. They know Lang students have strong ideas, and they are here to help you launch your academic journey and find your career path. More than 100 world-class scholars teach at Lang. Many of our faculty teach in other colleges of The New School, and Lang students even have the opportunity to study with teachers from our graduate programs. Faculty are actively engaged in their own research and eager to draw students into their projects—or help them design their own.

WHAT EMPOWERS YOU TO prepare FOR A WORLD THAT DOESN’T YET EXIST?

Our open curriculum means we don’t weigh you down with required courses that are not relevant to your interests. We give you the freedom to study what inspires you. You can choose from our wide range of majors and minors and design your own intellectual journey. Students can double-major in almost all areas of study offered at Lang.

THE NEW SCHOOL LANG


JORS Minors offer major opportunities.

With our wide range of minors, the New School curriculum is specifically designed to enable all our students to explore their interests across all schools and colleges. You can acquire new professional skills, develop an interdisciplinary outlook, and gain a competitive edge on job and graduate school applications.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF A RIGOROUS BA/BFA DUALDEGREE PROGRAM.

At The New School, you can simultaneously pursue liberal arts study and a studio or conservatory education and complete two degrees in five years. You can combine the professional training of Parsons or the School of Jazz with the seminar-style liberal arts education of Eugene Lang College—all within a single university.

ACADEMICS

29


RETH BEGIN EARNING A MASTER’S WHILE STILL AN UNDERGRAD.

If you are pursuing a bachelor’s degree at a college within The New School or are a transfer student who meets the program requirements, you can take master’s-level courses in your junior year. You can earn up to 18 credits (depending on the master’s program) in New School graduate-level courses and apply those graduate credits to both your undergraduate program and an MA or MS degree.

30

THE NEW SCHOOL LANG


HINK LANG COURSES ARE NEVER TYPICAL.

They are designed to allow you to create an intellectual journey that is uniquely your own. Here are a few examples: A History of Civil Rights in NYC Activating Urban Spaces Buddhism and Cognitive Science Chemistry of the Environment   Culture, Ethnicity, and Mental Health   The Forest of Symbols Giving an Account of Oneself Global Soccer, Global Politics History of Economic Thought Lang at the Guggenheim   Listening to America   Media Toolkit New School Eco-Mariners   Poetry as Translation Reading NYC: Citizen Journalism Watching Ballet/Watching Balanchine

ACADEMICS

31


DEVELOP A GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE.

Many Lang students spend a semester, academic year, or summer abroad taking courses, working at internships, or pursuing volunteer projects. With proper research and planning, you can study, work, or volunteer almost anywhere in the world. Lang offers foreign study options both through the school and through other institutions, including • Short-term programs led by Lang faculty during academic breaks • Domestic exchange and pre-approved study abroad programs with partner institutions
