About Pratt Institute
Pratt Institute, located in Brooklyn, New York, is one of the
most prestigious art, architecture, and design schools in
the world. And New York City is home to more artists than
any other city in the world.
Founded in 1887, Pratt Institute prepares its 3,400
undergraduates for rewarding and successful careers in art,
design, fashion, architecture, and writing.
With a 25-acre campus in Brooklyn and a campus in
Manhattan, the art and literary capital of the world, as
well as an upstate extension campus, Pratt offers students
state-of-the-art facilities with the best possible
equipment, materials, software, fabrication facilities,
printing, and space for them to work, as well as access to
museums, galleries, restaurants, vintage shops, and all
that Brooklyn and Manhattan have to offer.
The Institute’s historic, landscaped campus in the
Clinton Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn is home to all of the
bachelor’s programs except Construction Management,
which is located on the Manhattan campus, where all of the
Associate Degree Programs are also located.
A wide variety of majors and concentrations—from
traditional arts to the most contemporary digital arts and
design—enables students to explore all their interests with
minors and electives in different departments, leading to
extraordinarily complex work that is influenced by different
disciplines. Pratt’s programs are consistently ranked among
the best in the country. Pratt’s faculty and alumni include
the most renowned artists, designers, and scholars in
their fields.
As one of the world’s multicultural epicenters for arts,
culture, design, technological innovation, and business,
New York City provides Pratt students with an exceptional
learning environment that extends beyond the Pratt
campuses, from internships at design firms and art galleries
to museums and concert halls.

Why Is Pratt the First Choice for So Many Students?

concentrations in four schools (Architecture, Art,
Design, and Liberal Arts and Sciences), most of which

The School of Architecture’s mission is to educate the future
leaders of the design, planning, and management disciplines
in the professional fields of architecture, urban design, city
and regional planning, construction and facilities management,
environmental management, historic preservation, urban
placemaking, and real estate management. This effort builds upon
a strong context of professional education within an art and
design institute that stresses the relationship between intellectual
development and creative activity. The School offers a broad
cultural and analytical base in the liberal arts and sciences,
while providing the specialized knowledge unique to individual
disciplines. The importance of independent learning is emphasized
through studio-based curricula and research-oriented
thesis programs.
The balance between theory and practice is critical and
is gained only through rigorous exposure to these diverse elements.
The beauty of Pratt is that it has, in the words of one graduate,
“reached critical, cultural mass,” where the diversity and liveliness
of discussions about the how, what, and why of the profession
are always vigorous and interesting. The School of Architecture
is dedicated to maintaining the connection between design
theory and practice and to contributing to the knowledge necessary
to fully understand the built environment.
The range of programs within the School and the accessibility
of other programs within the Institute enable students to pursue
a wide variety of interests within the field. Architecture students
may take electives in fine arts, illustration, computer graphics,
industrial design, furniture design, interior design, and photo­graphy,
as well as architectural electives in advanced architectural theory,
advanced fabrication technology, and morphology.
The opportunity to learn from peers also is an invaluable part
of the educational experience. The student body includes many
international students, each of whom brings a different perspective
to the study of architecture. The School encourages transfer
students to apply and will evaluate credits from other colleges,
universities, or community colleges.
The Pratt student graduates from the Architecture program know
architecture as a discipline that gathers from the arts, sciences,
and liberal arts to produce works of value that are sensitive to the 
realities of life in cultures around the world.

aspects of design.
The liberal arts areas require 48 credits, of which 12
are taken within the School of Architecture (ARCH 151,
152, 251, and 252), 6 credits in English, 6 in cultural history,
6 in science, and 6 in social science. The remaining
12 credits are taken as electives selected from the liberal
arts courses offered by the School of Liberal Arts
and Sciences. The elective courses consist of 15 credits
of professional electives selected from courses
offered by the under­graduate architecture programs,
and 12 all-Institute electives, selected from courses
offered by any school in the Institute. By purposefully
selecting courses within all elective areas during their
last four semesters, students can develop their own
unique arch­i­tectural education based on their own needs
and goals. This personalized fourth-year curriculum
is directed toward culmination in the fifth-year degree
project. Individual curricula may be developed to place
more emphasis on such subject areas as design,
preservation, building technology, history and theory,
planning, construction management, and urban design
in the final two years of study.
The degree project year completes the student’s
academic architectural experience with an in‑depth
design study, preceded and accompanied by research.
The degree project is executed with guidance from
critics chosen by the student.
Undergraduate architecture students may also be

of interest in form studies with a focus on exploring the

The mission of the School of Art is to educate those who will
make and shape our built and mediated environ­ment, our aesthetic
surroundings, and our collective future.
Pratt’s School of Art is a destination for talented students with
a strong desire to explore the bound­aries of art. Young artists
from around the world come to study at Pratt’s campus, located
in the heart of historic and contemporary Brooklyn. Students join
a community of working artists who make up Pratt’s outstanding
faculty that encourages growth and experimentation.
The School of Art offers a diverse range of pro­grams in Digital
Arts, Film, Fine Arts, Photography, and Art and Design Education.
These programs are supported by studies in the liberal arts and
sciences, creating a dynamic context for stimulating intellectual
and creative inquiry. The School of Art programs are also enriched
by Pratt’s distinguished profes­sional programs in the School
of Design and the School of Architecture—all within the cultural
campus of New York City.
Two parallel objectives guide every department in the School
of Art. One is the emphasis on students acquiring a high level
of skills, techniques, method­ologies, and vocabulary required
for success as creative professionals. The second objective—
inter­twined with the first—is to balance that profes­sional
proficiency with a highly developed critical judgment based
on historical perspectives that allows students to become
effective and creative problem solvers for the world they
will graduate into.
The School of Art’s diverse collection of disciplines is dedicated
to the primacy of studio practice and the transform­­ative power
of creativity. We educate leaders in the creative professions to
identify, understand, shape, and benefit from the challenges
of a rapidly changing world. Our programs are designed to develop
critical thinking skills, deepen under­standing, enable practice,
and empower visionary action. The School of Art is dedicated
to developing creative leadership in a world that requires it.

Pratt Foundation is a yearlong experience that transforms
Foundation incoming students into a connected community of aspiring
artists, designers, creative makers, and thinkers.
As the gateway to Pratt for many students, Foundation
serves a critical role of introducing core concepts of
the creative practice while building community habits and
relationships that will endure well beyond the first-year
experience. Resembling today’s reality for makers and
visual thinkers, Pratt Foundation encourages students
to work collaboratively, pooling abilities, ideas, and talents
to synthesize technology and tradition into innovative,
creative outcomes. First-year students learn to rely
not only on their faculty, but also each other, for critical
feedback and support as they collectively strengthen
their abilities to enter into their chosen disciplines.
The Foundation year consists of two yearlong courses,
Light, Color, Design and Visualization and Representation
and two semester-long courses, Space, Form, Process,
and Time and Movement. Six-hour studio classes allow
for sustained and focused looking, learning, and making.
These courses focus on the fundamentals of art and design
while pushing students through a series of conceptually
challenging prompts to strengthen skills and hone their craft.
The Pratt Foundation classroom has been designed
as a laboratory that facilitates exploration and inquiry.
Students develop analog and digital skills through a series
of independently driven projects in their studio-based
classes. Projects are structured yet open-ended and allow
for self-discovery. Through successes and missteps,
Chair students learn to innovate solutions and recognize what
Leslie Mutchler it takes to be a successful artist or designer.

The BFA and BFA/MA degrees prepare students to
Art and Design approach teaching as a creative process modeled upon
and nourished by intensive studio preparation in a
Education contemporary art con­text. Students engage in fieldwork
and student teaching experiences that help them integrate
their studio work, studies in liberal arts, education
theory, and teaching practice. Throughout their teaching
experiences in K-12 schools and community-based
educational settings, students:
ll provide holistic studio learning opportunities
for young people;
ll value young people’s social and cultural assets; and
connect to young people’s families and communities.

Upon graduation, students become proficient in their


written and spoken communication about contemporary
art and design practices as they begin to advocate
for studio-based art and design programs in diverse
learning contexts.

What is a digital artist?
Digital Arts A visual thinker. A researcher.
A programmer. An inventor.
A builder. A storyteller.
A visionary.

One of the most exciting aspects of being an artist in the


21st century is the ability to digitally alter any medium to
express an idea.
Pratt’s Digital Arts program offers three distinct areas
of emphasis: digital (3-D) animation and motion arts, 2-D
animation, and interactive arts. In interactive arts, students
find their creative voices in the exploration of digitally
mediated installations, apps, and sculptures. 3-D animation
involves bringing the inanimate to life in a virtual world,
while 2-D animation explores the immediacy and joy of
tactile media. In each area, students have access to a wide
variety of high-quality technology in an environment that
can only be described as invigorating and innovative.
The Digital Arts program is populated with a faculty of
talented, leading professionals in the field. Many write for
trade and professional journals, and several have authored
trendsetting books. Their works are widely published and
exhibited both nationally and internationally.

THE PROGRAM’S STRUCTURE

BFA in Digital Arts


This program helps students master the new tech­nologies
that are reshaping the way people interact, communicate,
and create new forms of expression. The curriculum

Interactive Arts
Students use computer-human interaction to convey
meaning in the form of physical installations, interactive
objects, and online artworks. This includes the combin­
ation of video, animation, text, audio, and imagery in an
interactive environment. Courses include graphics
programming, interface design, interactive installation,
robotics and physical computing, ActionScript, and more.
Recommended electives include courses in sculpture,
history of new media, video editing, programming,
video installation, online media, electronic music, and
audio editing.

Digital (3-D) Animation and Motion Arts


Students focus on self-expression using form and motion,
time-based narrative, live action, and digital animation
techniques. Courses include 3-D modeling, 3-D animation,
character design, rigging, character animation, story­
boarding and storytelling, motion dynamics, lighting and
rendering, video editing, and audio editing. Recom­mended
electives include contemporary issues in film and video,
history of animation, 2-D animation, character design
and rigging, scripting, audio and video, compositing and
special effects, 3-D printing, and advanced digital
animation techniques. DAN RAN, BFA ’17, ACTION WITHOUT ACTION, INTERACTIVE DUAL SCREEN

2-D Animation
Animation courses are constructed to afford a wide
exposure to all aspects of animation production and to
allow students to focus on the areas of greatest interest.
Courses in animation history, character development,
storyboarding, and storytelling enhance the animation
production courses. The junior workshops are advanced
studies in animation production using traditional and
digital tools.

The future of the moving image is unpredictable and

Our mission is to provide you with tools and techniques,
an understanding of history, and a complex yet flexible
interdisciplinary arts education, allowing you to guide us
into that future.
Our recent graduates are already leading the way with
their infectious pioneering spirit. They are directing films
that have premiered at Cannes, the Toronto International
Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, Miami’s Art Basel,
and numerous other festivals. Some alumni work as video
editors and producers at prestigious media outlets
including MTV, USA Networks, Entertainment Weekly,
The New Yorker, People, and Time, while others are
directors for estab­lished commercial production
companies or have formed their own successful media
businesses. We celebrate their accomplishments and
look forward to yours.

THE PROGRAM’S STRUCTURE


In the first semester of freshman year, Film majors take
Film Fundamentals and Technical Practices, two rigorous
and comprehensive courses, which provide essential
foun­da­tional training. Students then delve into various
modes of filmmaking in Fiction I, Nonfiction, Expanded
Cinema, and Fiction II. In the junior year, in addition to our
core technical courses, the curriculum opens up to
more electives, more collaborations with students across
majors, and deeper study in the student’s chosen mode.
The culmination of the program is a guided but self-
defined senior project, publicly screened in New York City
(in recent years, at Brooklyn Academy of Music).
Students learn in an intimate workshop setting through
screenings, readings, technical demonstrations, production
exercises, class critiques, and visiting professionals, as well
as through internship programs in the many film, video, and GRACE ZHANG, BFA ’20, FILM STILLS

“I’d rather have my voice be powerful and profound
Fine Arts and courageous and reach an audience through my art.
My voice is my art.”—Mickalene Thomas, BFA ’00

Pratt’s major in Fine Arts offers a deep and sustained


dialogue between imagining and making. Embedded in a
curriculum of required and elective courses in art history
and the liberal arts and sciences, fine arts studio courses
impart the modes of creative problem-solving, technical
skills, and risk taking that transform students into
accomplished artists who have confidence in their ideas
and can take their work to the next level.
Pratt’s excellent shop facilities and dedicated tech­
nical staff generously support students’ ambitions as they
develop their visions and give them form. Sources of
inspir­ation and nourishment are close at hand; all students
have free access to the Museum of Modern Art, the
Whitney Museum of American Art, the Brooklyn Museum,
the Museum of Arts and Design, and the Frick Collection.
Graduates of the BFA program pursue diverse creative
and professional lives as studio artists, community artists,
art educators, gallerists, entrepreneurs, museum curators,
arts administrators, art critics, and art historians. Pratt’s
location in New York’s thriving art comm­unity offers
students many opportunities for integrating their Pratt
education with professional networking through internships,
contacts with visiting artists and critics, gallery visits, and
exhibitions of student work that are open to the public.
Every Pratt student and graduate has access to the
Institute’s career development and counseling resources,
including databases of jobs and paid internships in New
York City, the creative capital of the United States.

THE PROGRAM’S STRUCTURE
The Department of Photography is committed to the
education of artists and professionals who have acquired
a comprehensive understanding of the artistic and pro­fes­
sional opportunities in the field. The curriculum provides an
extensive photographic education through a series of core
classes that promote students’ technical and conceptual
development. Photography majors move from a highly
structured program in their freshman and sophomore
years to a more flexible program in their junior and senior
years in which students choose from a variety of electives
in photography, other studio disciplines, and in the
humanities. This approach is intended to facilitate the
transition from student to independent artist and professional.
Completion of the curriculum culminates with an exhibition
in the Pratt Photography Gallery, as well as a group show in
a New York City gallery, and a collaborative photography
pub­lication. Small class sizes help to promote a strong sense
of community in the intimate setting of Pratt’s Brooklyn
campus. Students are given opportunities to meet
artists and critics through the Pratt Photography Lectures,
visiting critiques, and artist studio and museum visits.
This access can help students build contacts and relation­
ships with influential professionals in the field. Like a
small town within a big city, we look to give students their
own voice, so they can employ it in whichever direction
they choose.

BACHELOR OF FINE ARTS IN PHOTOGRAPHY


Undergraduates establish strong photographic practices
and discourses through the study of analog and digital
processes, the history and theory of photography, and the
development of critical thinking and writing skills through
required and elective courses in photography, other
creative disciplines, and the liberal arts. Participating in
this experience prepares students to actively contribute
to culture and society as leaders in the photographic
arts and applied industries, as well as to pursue graduate
studies in related fields. Graduates are expected to
demon­strate excellence in artistic vision, professional
skills, innovation, and a contextual understanding of their
work in contemporary culture.

Pratt provides one of the most comprehensive design educations
available, supported by a distinguished faculty and exceptional
resources, and located in the borough of Brooklyn, New York’s
design and cultural epicenter.
Gifted students from across the United States and around the
world collaborate and learn at Pratt, weaving creative energy and
opportunity into an unmatched educational experience.
The faculty consists of professional designers, artists, and
practi­tioners, including numerous recipients of prestigious awards,
such as Tiffany, Fulbright, and Guggenheim Fellowships. The
faculty’s works, projects, and publications are recognized and
respected around the world.
The School of Design offers degrees in Communications Design,
Fashion Design, Industrial Design, and Interior Design. The intensive,
studio-based programs of study are paired with studies in the
liberal arts and sciences, creating a dynamic context for stimulating
intellectual and creative inquiry.
The School of Design programs are also enriched by Pratt’s
dis­ting­uished programs in the School of Art and the School of
Architecture—all within the broader cultural campus of New
York City.
Two parallel objectives guide every program at Pratt. The first
is an emphasis on professional development. Students gain the
techniques, skills, methodologies, and vocabulary they require to
succeed as productive artists, designers, and scholars. The second
objective recognizes that this technical experience only takes root
within a complex cultural context. Therefore, students in the
School of Design also develop the critical judgment and historical
perspective they need to become creative problem solvers in the
international arena.
The mission of the School of Design is to educate those who
will make and shape our built and mediated environ­ment, our
aesthetic surroundings, and our collective future. We are dedicated
to the primacy of studio practice and the transformative power
of creativity. We educate leaders in the creative professions to
identify, understand, shape, and benefit from the challenges of
a rapidly changing world. Our courses are designed to develop
critical thinking skills, deepen understanding, enable practice,
and empower visionary action. The School of Design is dedicated
to developing creative leadership in a world that requires it.

Pratt Foundation is a yearlong experience that transforms
Foundation incoming students into a connected community of aspiring
artists, designers, creative makers, and thinkers.
As the gateway to Pratt for many students, Foundation
serves a critical role of introducing core concepts of
the creative practice while building community habits and
relationships that will endure well beyond the first-year
experience. Resembling today’s reality for makers and visual
thinkers, Pratt Foundation encourages students to work
collaboratively, pooling abilities, ideas, and talents to
synthesize technology and tradition into innovative, creative
outcomes. First-year students learn to rely not only on
their faculty, but also each other, for critical feedback and
support as they collectively strengthen their abilities to
enter into their chosen disciplines.
The Foundation year consists of two yearlong courses,
Light, Color, Design and Visualization and Representation
and two semester-long courses, Space, Form, Process, and
Time and Movement. Six-hour studio classes allow for
sustained and focused looking, learning, and making. These
courses focus on the fundamentals of art and design
while pushing students through a series of conceptually
challenging prompts to strengthen skills and hone their craft.
The Pratt Foundation classroom has been designed
as a laboratory that facilitates exploration and inquiry.
Students develop analog and digital skills through a series
of independently driven projects in their studio-based
classes. Projects are structured yet open-ended and allow
for self-discovery. Through successes and missteps,
Chair students learn to innovate solutions and recognize what

countless others.
Guest practitioners from all fashion backgrounds join
faculty in the classroom as visiting lecturers, advisers,
and critics. Each semester, a full roster of fashion experts
is invited to talk theory and practice with Pratt students.

The Curriculum
The Fashion Design curriculum fosters development of
indivi­dual identity within a collaborative environment,
inform­ed by self-reflection and engaged critique. A pro­
fessionally active and accomplished faculty challenges
students to seek beyond the conventional. Students are
prompted to have an ongoing dialog between sketch,
flat 2-D patternmaking, and 3-D drape. They are expected
to work consistently—executing the fashion idea through
the making of innovative collections.
The Department of Fashion offers a wide variety of
elective and advanced courses in topics such as accessory,
NOSO technology, and advanced topical courses to
complement the core curriculum. The department offers
international exchange programs and intensives abroad.

Internship WORK BY ELIE ROMERO, BFA ’19

Pratt students are required to complete three credits of


internship during their senior year. Students have the
opportunity to explore different aspects of the New York
fashion design industry through their choice of internships.
The internship experience provides them with job search­
ing and interview skills, as well as practice in how to write
a résumé and present their portfolio. A Pratt faculty adviser
guides each student throughout the experience, making
sure the students’ learning objectives are met.

Alumni
Pratt Fashion graduates go on to do remarkable things in
the industry. Many develop their own collections and labels,
and virtually all find placement at top design houses in New
York and beyond. Pratt alumni design for Calvin Klein, Oscar
de la Renta, Monse, Thom Browne, Creatures of the Wind,
Maryam Nassir Zadeh, Adam Selman, Opening Ceremony,
Creatures of Comfort, Ralph Lauren, and countless others.

THE PROGRAM’S STRUCTURE

Pratt BID alumni are designers, artists, educators,


entrepreneurs, researchers, and corporate leaders.
This diversity comes from a program of study that allows
freedom to explore. In the freshman and sophomore
years, students take core courses, which provide grounding
in drawing, color, 3-D form, model making, and digital
computer skills. At the same time, they take design studios
that introduce them to critical thinking, problem solving,
and environmental responsibility. A variety of studio
options are open in the junior and senior years when
students can take specialized studios that respond to
their individual interests and skills, such as:
ll Product design
ll Furniture
ll Tabletop and food design
ll Shoes and athletic gear
ll Exhibition design
ll Interdisciplinary design

By the end of senior year, students complete a cap­


stone studio, which follows students’ choice of subject
and delineates the direction of their future careers.
The capstone studio project is presented at the annual WORK BY CASEY BERGNER, BID ’19 TABLEWARE FROM ARTFOOD PROJECT BY ADITI KEDIA, BID ’18
design show, a public event attended by industry leaders
and potential employers.
The department offers study-abroad exchanges with a
number of leading European design schools and a summer
program in furniture making in Copenhagen through the
Danish International School.

THE PROGRAM’S STRUCTURE

BFA in Interior Design


BFA in Interior Design students have the opportunity
to study interior design as an integral element of the
built environment by generating creative solutions that
integrate an understanding of light and color, craft and
making, material research, changing technologies, sustain-
able practice, and current issues, including knowledge
about global cultural history and diverse contexts. The
program prepares students to engage in critical inquiry
and at an explorative capacity that will establish them as
innovators in the field of interior design, pointing to
the larger potentials of professional practice, design
education, and research affecting the interior environment.
At Pratt, students focus on a variety of interior design
projects that grow more complex as the curriculum
proceeds. Students begin their study of interior design
in the sophomore year upon completion of a required
year in Foundation. During the BFA coursework, interested
students may apply to spend the spring term of the junior
year at the Danish International School (DIS), studying interior
architecture in Copenhagen. The program at DIS includes

The mission of the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences (SLAS)
is to enable students to explore areas of knowledge and to reflect
critically and creatively on aesthetic forms and on intellectual
and cultural practices. Students conduct research, substantiate
arguments, and communicate in the broadest possible socio-
historical, literary, and scientific contexts. The school’s primary
goal is for students to make continuing contributions as critical
thinkers and creative professionals.
SLAS plays two major roles in the undergraduate curriculum.
First, it provides a well-rounded education for students in the
professional programs, offering a general education curriculum
in humanities and media studies, mathematics and science,
social science, and cultural studies. With both depth and breadth
unequaled by other colleges of art and design, SLAS also offers
a suite of minors to complement the professional degrees: Cinema
Studies, Creative Writing, Cultural Studies, History of Art and
Design, Literature and Writing, Media Studies, Performance and
Performance Studies, Philosophy, Psychology, and Sustainability.
Second, the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences offers three
undergraduate degrees: the BA in Critical and Visual Studies, the
BFA in Writing, and the BFA in the History of Art and Design.
The Critical and Visual Studies program is for the curious and
imaginative student who wants to pursue studies in the liberal arts
and sciences while immersed in Pratt’s unique environment of
creative openness and intellectual experimentation. At the core
of the program is the understanding that the integration of theory,
method, and experience is crucial to learning. Here, every aspect
of social life—from street art to political systems, from international
media to the global economy—is a potential subject of study.
The program provides a unique interdisci­plinary framework
within which our students explore the liberal arts through the study
of the artistic, social, and political meanings of cultural and
aesthetic production.
The chief goal of the undergraduate writing degree is the grad­
uation of creative writers who are well-versed in literature,
literary theory, and other modes of critical thinking. At the center
of the curriculum are creative writing studios in which a range of
forms are explored. The studios are complemented by core courses
that focus on essential, but too often neglected, aspects of the
literary arts—word choice, grammar, logic, exposition, and critical

create for their students, and most importantly, are
reflected in the quality of our students’ work.
Students come from a wide range of backgrounds,

encourage students to be active artists and makers in
addition to their historical studies.
The History of Art and Design Department offers exciting
lectures and seminars with a wide range of approaches,
from geographically and chronologically oriented studies
to the most recent theoretical approaches. Frequent
excursions result from our extensive working relationships
with the city’s museums, galleries, and cultural organ­iz­ations
and are a crucial part of the curriculum.

The BFA program affords a grounding in the philosophy,
literature, and criticism of the history of art and design.
Students will take specially designed foundation courses
and the survey classes. They will continue with additional
credits in liberal arts (English, humanities, sciences, social
sciences, and foreign language), studio, and electives.
Majors will take upper-level electives in film and design,
architecture, non-Western, pre-Renaissance, Renaissance
to Rococo, and 19th-, 20th-, or 21st-century art. Theory
