We develop disciplinary fluency in our program of study and we celebrate the interdisciplinary nature of design critical to address the plurality and complexity of the environments in which we operate.
Being situated in NYC provides our students with opportunities to a diverse network of industry leaders, faculty practitioners, and alumni who have made the city their home, personally and professionally (home to their studio practice or something like that).
Transitioning from the academic world to the professional requires a unique blend of support, resources, and access. The Center for Career and Professional Development is there every step of the way, from industry portfolio reviews to networking opportunities.
Students seek out NYC as their place of study and investigation for a myriad of reasons, from cultural inspiration to exposure to diverse urban environments and people. So much of a Pratt education happens outside the studio/classroom as it does inside.
