Using an interdisciplinary and collaborative approach, Pratt's Sustainable Design Certificate program covers sustainable design theory, practice, processes, and materials to address real-world challenges, while highly encouraging research and innovation. The program is based on whole systems thinking, engaging the design process with nature's processes and designs in the context of societal systems.  Students can start the program any term and can typically complete the program within two terms.
