Digital tools empower designers to blur the lines between fields. Take an interdisciplinary approach to Pratt SCPS Digital Design Certificate Programs. Combine elective classes across digital design fields with a foundation in graphic design to enter one of the multifaceted roles today’s designers occupy. Grow your network and gain real-world experience through an internship while you study (not available to students in F1 status).

Pratt Institute is authorized under Federal law to enroll non-immigrant, international students. International students are required to maintain a fulltime schedule, consisting of a minimum of 18 clock hours per week, during the fall and spring semesters. Students may be eligible for optional practical training (OPT) upon completion of the certificate program.
