Digital tools empower designers to blur the lines between fields. Take an interdisciplinary approach to Pratt’s Digital Design certificates. Combine elective classes across digital design fields with a foundation in graphic design to enter one of the multidisciplinary roles today’s designers occupy. Grow your network while building a professional design portfolio.
