When James Lipton asks you what your favorite swear word is, you know you've made it. The New School's drama department (formerly called The Actor's Studio) was made famous by the cable show Inside the Actors Studio, which features Lipton interviewing movie and television stars. The school offers degrees in theater for playwriting, directing, and acting, and has taught "Method" acting to grads such as Marlon Brando and Robert De Niro. It is also home to Parsons The New School for Design and has schools devoted to general studies, liberal arts, social research, management and urban policy, and music. More than 10,500 traditional students and 5,600 continuing education students are enrolled at The New School.
