Hometests- The Parsons Challenge




All BFA, BBA, BS, and BA/BFA program applicants must complete the Parsons Challenge and submit it to the Admission Committee.

Submissions for the Parsons Challenge are accepted through SlideRoom only.

The Challenge: Explore something usually overlooked within your daily environment. Choose one object, location, or activity.

Using any medium or media, interpret your discovery in three original pieces. Support each piece of art with an essay of approximately 250 words. The series you create should convey a conceptual and creative response to the subject matter.

All forms of media are acceptable—drawing, video, photography, sculpture, 3D work, collage, digital images. You may choose to work in a consistent medium or vary the media.

The Parsons Challenge helps the Admission Committee understand how a prospective student develops ideas, creates a theme, visually communicates that theme, and defends the work in writing.
