Applying as a Graduate Student
Pratt offers graduate programs in its four schools: Art and Design, Architecture, Information and Library Science, and Liberal Arts and Sciences. Pratt's School of Liberal Arts and Sciences is now accepting applications for its new MA in Media Studies for entrance in fall 13. .
Pratt has a large graduate program with 1,700 graduate students. Students work closely with faculty and visiting critics throughout the development of their thesis work. The expertise of Pratt's world renowned faculty — all practicing professionals in their respective fields — guides the experience of graduate students, who are accepted to Pratt through a selective admissions process. The diverse graduate programs are enriched by annual visits by many distinguished visiting artists, scholars and guest critics. Pratt's location just 25 minutes from Manhattan is ideal for its students, providing access to New York's riches, but also enabling Pratt to hire successful practicing artists, architects, lecturers to teach and to participate in visiting artist/lecturer programs. The connections students make with the professional world through their faculty are invaluable. In addition, the Center for Career & Professional Development provides job placement services for a graduate's lifetime.
