Parsons design school establishes academic centre in Paris

New York-based ‘Parsons The New School For Design’, the alma mater of the contemporary extraordinary fashion designers like Balenciaga’s new creative director Alexander Wang and American fashion talent Marc Jacobs, is opening a new fashion design school in Paris – the European hub of art, craft and heritage.
 
Scheduled to be opened in September 2013, Parsons Paris will offer U.S. undergraduate and graduate degrees in fashion design, design management and history of the decorative arts to more than 150 students.
 
Though primarily based on the courses developed for the New York campus, the new school’s curriculum will be slightly modified to suit the Parisian culture. 
 
English will be the basic medium in which the program courses will be taught, however students can also avail the opportunities to take French language classes in Parsons Paris.
 
Based on the same ethics of the New York school, one-third of the proceeds collected from the tuition fees at Paris campus will go into the institution’s scholarship programs.
 
Colloquially known as Parsons or Parsons School of Design, the New York campus was established in 1896 as a private non-profit entity. Currently, the school offers more than 25 undergraduate and graduate programs.
