Overview

Psychology is a study of human mental processes, emotions, behaviors, and activities. The Psychology minor at Pratt Institute provides students with a deep grounding in diverse theoretical perspectives and a working understanding of empirical research methodologies in order to scaffold creative, critical, and psychologically mindful processes of artistic production, design, urban planning, and architecture. We aim to train broad and creative thinkers by exposing students to classical theoretical and methodological approaches while at the same time articulating a new understanding of psychology in the direction of critical engagement with the canonical field. Situated at Pratt in Brooklyn, New York, Psychology Minor aims to produce socially and culturally relevant research that reflects the vibrancy of these two uniquely dynamic and diverse urban contexts.
