Welcome to City and Regional Planning
Pratt’s accredited City & Regional Planning program graduates practitioners with the technical, strategic thinking, and collaborative know-how to plan and implement improvements for neighborhoods, cities, and metropolitan areas.
Of the 264 planning programs in the country, Pratt’s City & Regional Planning program ranks sixth nationally among master’s degree-granting institutions that do not also grant PhDs. According to educators, Pratt ranks 22nd nationally among all programs, including those that grant PhDs. The rankings are in the Planetizen Guide to Graduate Urban Planning Programs—the only comprehensive ranking and listing of graduate urban planning programs available.
PSPD's Brooklyn-based programs (City & Regional Planning, Urban Environmental Systems Management, and Historic Preservation) have an open house on the first Tuesday of every month except for July and January. Arrive at Higgins Hall suite 206 north at 6 pm for an overview of the PSPD and meetings with the coordinators of each program based on your interest(s). Light refreshments with current students will be provided. You can also sit in on a class at 8 pm, or arrange to do so on another day. Higgins Hall is located at the corner of Lafayette Avenue and St. James Place in the Clinton Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn, one block from the Clinton / Washington stop on the G subway line. Please RSVP to Adia Ware at email@example.com and indicate your program(s) of interest.
These programs also have two Saturday Information Sessions per semester. Check back soon for Fall 2013 Saturday Information Session times and dates. Please visit this page for more information.
At 50 years and 100 students, the City and Regional Planning Program is among the oldest and largest graduate programs in the Institute.
