English Language Programs at Pratt

Creative learners require creative approaches. Our courses focus on language and academic skill development through art- and design-related content. Pratt Institute’s fully qualified ESL faculty aim to help students think critically and inventively and to thrive in academic and studio contexts. Fall and Spring semesters (IEP and CEP) meet for fifteen weeks. Summer sessions (SCP) are eight weeks long and meet for 24 hours/week. The CEP and SCP include a “Pratt Studio Experience” in which students create visual projects under the guidance of Pratt graduate students.
