Pratt Institute’s interior design and architecture programs are ranked among the best in the country, according to America’s Top-Ranked Architecture & Design Schools survey from DesignIntelligence (DI), a monthly architecture and design journal. The rankings are based on the perspective of three key audiences: architecture and design professionals, academic leaders, students, and recent graduates.

Pratt’s graduate interior design program ranked first in the country, up from last year’s third position. For the third consecutive year, the Institute’s undergraduate interior design program was ranked second most admired in the nation. Both programs ranked in the top 10 of all Twelve Key Focus Areas, with graduate interior design ranking in the top three in each.

The Institute’s undergraduate architecture program was ranked seventh in the country, up from ninth in last year’s survey. The program placed in the top 10 of the Twelve Key Focus Areas in five categories including communication skills, design technologies, and practice management. Pratt’s graduate architecture program was ranked 17th, up from 25th in the 2017-18 rankings.
