Democracy and Diversity Institute
The Democracy and Diversity Institute, organized annually each summer by the Transregional Center for Democratic Studies in Warsaw, Poland, is widely admired as an intimate international forum for lively but rigorous debate on critical issues of democratic life, offering an interdisciplinary, comparative, and highly interactive approach to the social, political, and cultural challenges facing today’s world. The program includes specialized coursework with a changing global theme each year and is complemented by several study tours of Warsaw’s political, cultural and historical landmarks as well as evening events featuring major intellectuals and artists from the region. To apply, all students must be at the graduate level or in their junior or senior year of an undergraduate program.
International Field Program
The International Field Program (IFP) is open to graduate and upper-level undergraduate students throughout The New School. The IFP's six-credit, two-month-long summer programs focus on international affairs-related research, seminars, and work with local organizations. New School credit is awarded for these courses, which may count toward degree requirements.
