Art and design professionals in the 21st century must navigate a fluid and networked global culture. Parsons prepares its graduates for this rapidly evolving world by offering a range of cross-disciplinary graduate programs that place advanced studio practice and research at their center.

Master of Architecture (MArch)
This three-year NAAB-accredited program combines contemporary studio practice with design history and theory, technology, and representation. Students are prepared to enter the professional architecture community and contribute to the shaping of a constructed world.

MFA Design and Technology
Today’s designer faces two fundamental challenges: the expanding influence of design within society and the growing role of technology within design. The MFA in Design and Technology provides a lively and dynamic environment for students to use design research, processes, applied theory, and writing to address these challenges. Soon to be offered at Parsons Paris.

MS Design and Urban Ecologies
This new program radically reframes the study of cities. Through research and fieldwork, students will gain a broad understanding of the forces that influence urban growth and development. Working in multidisciplinary teams, they will design processes for urban transformation.

MA Design Studies
Drawing on the breadth and depth of expertise in design theory and practice at Parsons, this new master of arts program is an opportunity to explore design as both a field of scholarly research and an agent of social change.

MFA Fashion Design and Society
Both interdisciplinary and international in scope, this academy for advanced studies in fashion design trains a small group of world-class designers. Innovative and progressive, the program offers students the opportunity to make substantive contributions to the field of fashion design.

MA Fashion Studies
Students in this groundbreaking program explore fashion as object, image, text, practice, theory, and concept—and develop a critical understanding of fashion and its complex global intersections with identities, histories, and cultures in the contemporary world.

MFA Fine Arts
Students in the MFA in Fine Arts program acquire a comprehensive understanding of both the material elements that compose artworks and the ideas that make them meaningful. Students have access to a multitude of exhibition venues in New York City and to fellowships and residencies through faculty and institutional networks.

MA History of Decorative Arts and Design
Offered jointly with the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, this program focuses on the stylistic, historical, and theoretical contexts of European and American decorative arts and design from the Renaissance to the present.

MFA Interior Design
This program builds on 100 years of Parsons’ history and leadership in the field of interior design and offers links to other Parsons graduate programs in architecture, product design, and lighting design. A three-year double major MFA Interior/Lighting Design is also offered.

MFA Lighting Design
The only graduate lighting program to emphasize the values of both design and civic responsibility, Parsons MFA Lighting Design program examines the relationships between theory, technical application, energy conservation, and social and environmental factors in both electric and natural light. A three-year double major MFA Interior/Lighting Design is also offered.

MArch/MFA Lighting Design Dual Degree
Students pursuing the MArch/MFA LD track expand their knowledge of form, program, site, materials, and the role of lighting in structure.

MFA Photography
The graduate Photography program functions as a 21st-century studio and think tank. Students are encouraged to develop their individual vision in a collaborative, interdisciplinary environment.

MS Strategic Design and Management
This rigorous industry-focused program prepares managers to launch and lead design process–driven organizations in our complex global economy. The curriculum combines business seminars and design courses. It can be completed either online or on campus in New York City. Soon to be offered at Parsons Paris.

MA Theories of Urban Practice
This new research-driven, interdisciplinary graduate program will prepare students to guide the transformation of cities as strategic leaders of community groups, foundations, educational institutions, think tanks, public agencies, private firms, and global networks of collaborative practices.

MFA Transdisciplinary Design
Working in interdisciplinary teams, students address pressing social issues using new ideas, tools, and methods. They gain insights from industry leaders and emerge with a portfolio of projects showcasing design as a process for transforming the way we live in the 21st century.

Graduate Certificate in Design Business
This new graduate certificate program consists of six courses in design management, business, innovation, and leadership that address issues confronting design-intensive and creative industries.
