All undergraduate programs include a strong liberal arts component, including courses in art and design history, theory, and criticism. These courses provide a context for studio practice. And because Parsons is part of a larger university with a tradition of cross-disciplinary inquiry, students can choose from a wide range of lecture courses and electives in humanities, social sciences, media studies, and business.
Parsons also offers a dual BA/BFA degree program in which students can combine a BFA from Parsons with a BA from Eugene Lang College The New School for Liberal Arts.
