As part of The New School, Parsons Paris is a community of innovators dedicated to new approaches, new ways of thinking, and new solutions. Today we are called to live these values, to bring our campus and community together in inspiring new ways, and
to reimagine our educational experience in the 2020–2021 academic year. As we all continue to confront the ongoing challenges of the coronavirus pandemic, one thing remains constant: the value of a New School education.
The fall 2020 semester will start on August 31 and end on December 18, and courses will be delivered in a hybrid format, combining online and on-campus learning.
As our new students plan for the next academic year, and the university continues to follow guidance from government and health officials, we are offering a hybrid first semester program for First Year students to facilitate your academic year, wherever
you may be and until you arrive at our Parsons Paris campus.
The first semester of the First Year will be a 15-week hybrid program, with 7 weeks online followed by 8 weeks on campus in Paris. The academic year will start with a virtual orientation on August 27 and proceed according to the below details:
We will host a special orientation week to introduce students to Paris from October 19 to October 23, including cultural activities and field trips for newly arrived students and those already on campus. For more information on pre-arrival procedures, please visit our New Student information page.
Campus will open September 1 pending any new guidance from the French authorities. Students who are currently in Paris, and those who can arrive before October 5 will be able to use the facilities. The Fall semester will be a 15-week hybrid program, with
online instruction until October 2, followed by classes on campus in Paris as detailed below:
