GLUE @ THE NEW SCHOOL
The New School's interdisciplinary undergraduate programs in Global, Urban and Environmental Studies (GLUE) form an academic laboratory for students to delve into the manifold ways in which global forces are redefining our cities and our ecologies. Within a project-centered curriculum students develop expertise through one of our undergraduate majors and a suite of graduate programs. Students learn to synthesize and creatively employ concepts and skills from social sciences, design, and humanities, and to use this knowledge to impact their world.
