Students work closely with faculty and visiting critics throughout the development of their thesis work. The expertise of Pratt's world renowned faculty—all practicing professionals in their respective fields—guides the experience of graduate students, who are accepted to Pratt through a selective admissions process. The diverse graduate programs are enriched by annual visits by many distinguished visiting artists, scholars, and guest critics. Manhattan’s location just 25 minutes from Pratt is ideal for its students, providing access to New York's riches but also enabling Pratt to hire successful practicing artists, architects, and lecturers to teach and to participate in visiting artist/lecturer programs. The connections students make with the professional world through their professors are invaluable. Students are placed in internships and eventually jobs arranged through faculty connections as well as Pratt’s Center for Career and Professional Development, which provides job placement services for a graduate's lifetime.
