Frank Alvah Parsons started the first-ever interior design program here in 1906, defining the field as both a creative practice and scholarly work. The Parsons School of Design is still highly regarded, and breaking new ground today with its emphasis on sustainable design practices. The chance to study design in the centre of a kinetic design capital is another plus. And the school takes advantage of this access to the interior design community: The faculty are largely practicing designers with whom students can foster strong working connections.
Parsons School of Design offers a design education within a stone’s throw of some of the best designers and leading spaces in the world, a forward-thinking focus on sustainable design.
