Parsons Paris

  • Make in Paris

    As a global cultural capital, Paris has no equal. The city’s celebrated museums and architecture, renowned research centers and nonprofits, and central location are just a few of the reasons why Paris has been voted the best city in the world for students for the last four years. The city also attracts top faculty talent—professionals from the European and New York art and design communities—who broaden your view of international design. They make full use of the Parisian context, connecting you to legendary design houses and events, artisanal traditions, and entrepreneurial tech culture. They give you access to materials and fabrication methods, practitioners, and cultural resources found only here, so what you make uniquely reflects your setting — whether that involves garments, digital tools, or scholarly articles.

    Partners including the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (ENSAD), and Centre national des arts plastiques (CNAP) also offer you special access to objects, products, and creative communities that guide your developing career in art and design. Whether our connections with InDigital Media/ are taking you backstage at Paris Fashion Week or local digital firms are putting you at the forefront of social innovation, Parsons Paris has you exploring the city like a Parisian.
