Parsons Paris

  • IMG - Dean's Message Florence LeClerc

    Bienvenue à Parsons Paris! Our campus is located in one of the most vibrant cities in the world, a capital of fashion, art, and design where innovation and tradition are part of daily life. As a Parsons Paris student, you will receive the best of an American art and design education in a city that has inspired generations of artists, designers, and scholars.

    When you join our campus, you become a member of an international community of excellence. Here you will be encouraged to think globally in a local context. Our interdisciplinary approach will allow you to explore new creative solutions to today's challenges. Parsons Paris and the city are a laboratory where you can actively participate in projects with prestigious industry partners and learn across disciplines in a seamless manner inside and outside of the classroom. In addition, Parsons Paris prides itself on its atelier-like experience, which fosters rich and individualized student-faculty interactions.

    As the dean of Parsons Paris, I embrace the values of social justice of The New School and I want to make sure that our students acquire the tools that will allow them to think critically to better the world. Your journey with us will be one of questioning the status quo, challenging codes and norms, and thinking outside of the box to shape the future.

    Our faculty, our staff, and I look forward to welcoming you on campus.
