Undergraduate Writing Program
At Pratt, Writing BFA majors start writing on the first day of their first semester and continue for the next four years, completing a book-length work of poetry, fiction, or nonfiction for their senior thesis. They learn by doing and by having their efforts rigorously responded to in critiques by hard-working peers and inspiring, accomplished instructors.
Along the way Writing majors read widely and deeply in contemporary and classical literatures; they enjoy opportunities to study the other arts offered at Pratt; and they have the chance to take courses and minors in subjects ranging from film to social justice to performance. The Writing BFA takes full advantage of its location in Brooklyn and New York City, offering a wide array of valuable internships to Writing students and creating opportunities for students to closely engage with distinguished visiting writers.
