Parsons to Set Up New Academic Center in Paris

Parsons the New School for Design will establish a new academic center in Paris, opening in fall 2013. The campus will offer undergraduate programs in Fashion Design, Strategic Design and Management, and Art, Media and Technology; and graduate programs in Design and Technology, Design Studies, Fashion Studies, and the History of Decorative Arts and Design.

"Parsons Paris has begun a new chapter," says Joel Towers, Parsons’ executive dean. "Our new academic center will offer students from around the world an innovative education that addresses the global nature of contemporary art and design practice, and reflects distinctly European culture and philosophy."

"With Parsons Paris, we are taking a strategic approach," says Renaud Dutreil, a Parsons trustee and president of the French association that will support the operation of Parsons Paris. "Rather than build a satellite of Parsons' New York campus, we are amplifying our heritage in the French capital to embrace art, design, business, government, and academic partners.”
