TEACHING PARTICIPATORY PRACTICE AS THE BEST WAY TO ADVOCATE FOR JUST, EQUITABLE COMMUNITIES

The MSCRP program has an emphasis on participatory planning and multidisciplinary practice. Students graduate equipped with the knowledge of theory, technical capacity, collaborative skills, and critical thinking abilities necessary to plan for economic, environmental, and social justice in urban neighborhoods and metropolitan regions.

Eighty percent of MSCRP students maintain internships and jobs while attending Pratt. Building on studio work,  individual research projects, and internships, Pratt MSCRP graduates go on to launch careers in public, private and non-profit sectors.
