Summer Credit Intensives

The Summer Credit Intensive program offers a unique opportunity for college students/adult learners to experience the professional world of art and design from within the context of a prestigious art school. Benefit from the expertise of Pratt faculty for an introduction to visual art theory and/or practice, as well as the potential to acquire a skill set in various disciplines. Fulfill an art or elective requirement or just explore an area of interest. Open to all non-art majors and all levels of experience.

Yoga and Wellness Program

Pratt Institute’s Center for Continuing and Professional Studies (CCPS) has launched the Yoga and Pilates Wellness Program on its Brooklyn Campus. The courses are offered in the fall, spring, and summer semesters through CCPS, allowing students to apply these one-credit courses toward their studio elective requirements.
