Transdisciplinary Design program Parsons DESIS Lab School of Design Strategies

Emphasizing collaborative design-led research and a systems-oriented approach to social innovation and service design, Parsons’ Master of Fine Arts in Transdisciplinary Design program serves as an academic laboratory in New York City for graduate students seeking to define the next phase of design practice globally. The Transdisciplinary Design program was created for designers interested in developing ideas, tools, and working methods to address pressing social issues and the complex challenges of a global culture. This program is part of Parsons' School of Design Strategies (SDS).

Parsons DESIS (Design for Social Innovation and Sustainability) Lab is an action-research laboratory created in 2009 at The New School in New York City. DESIS Lab works at the intersection of strategic and service design, management, and social theory, applying interdisciplinary expertise in problem setting and problem solving to sustainable practices and social innovation.
