Pratt Institute

    Ranked among the top design schools by BusinessWeek, Pratt offers a variety of top-ranked graduate programs in art, architecture, design, information science, planning, and more. In a city where most colleges claim for their campus the sidewalks and streets, Pratt's main campus in Brooklyn, New York, home to most of its graduate and undergraduate programs, is a twenty-five-acre oasis of grass, century-old trees, meandering paths and historic buildings. Located in Clinton Hill, one of Brooklyn’s historic residential neighborhoods, Pratt’s main campus is a short commute to Manhattan by public transit lines and car. Pratt also holds day, evening and weekend graduate program classes at its Manhattan campus at 144 W. 14th St. in Manhattan. Housing and parking are available at Pratt's Brooklyn campus.

    Pratt's faculty, most of whom are distinguished professionals, bring to the classroom a "real world" expertise, a strong theoretical base and the high standards of their professional work. The faculty has received more than 18 Tiffany, Fulbright and Guggenheim Awards as well as other prestigious professional awards. All of the Institute's programs are supported by state-of-the-art studios and computer labs, preparing graduates for the increasingly competitive marketplace. In fact, 98 percent of Pratt’s graduate students are employed within one year of graduation. Pratt also has extensive gallery space featuring the work of students, alumni, faculty and other well-known artists and designers throughout the academic year. The Institute educates about 4,150 undergraduate and graduate students from 44 states and more than 70 countries.
