Eugene Lang College/ New School for Liberal Arts is the seminar-style, undergraduate, liberal arts college of The New School university. It is located on-campus in New York City's Greenwich Village on West 11th Street off 6th Avenue. The college currently has an enrollment of over 1,345 students.
The New School has a "student-directed curriculum", which does not require its undergraduates to take extensive general education courses. Consequently, students at Lang are encouraged to explore before focusing on a major, selecting topics that are of interest to them. The only required classes are an introductory course on New York City - taught from the perspective of the relation of philosophy to the physical - two lecture hall courses, and two semesters of Writing the Essay for freshman students.
