Your education. Your way. Discover a public arts and science education driven by your curiosity, career aspirations, and individual learning style.

Individualized degree plan

You’ll work with your faculty adviser to build an academic “contract” each semester instead of a one-size-fits-all traditional degree program. You’ll thrive on the freedom to take risks and develop the self-reliance to achieve your goals.

Explore our curriculum

Hands-on learning

You’ll experience hands-on learning through mentorships, internships and research projects – the kind students don’t typically experience until graduate school.

New College + the Cross College Alliance in the Community supports curricular and research initiatives that preserve local history, integrate social and racial justice work into artistic practice and teaching, and explore questions of special interest to the local community.
