  • The combination of an award-winning professional faculty, a wide variety of majors ranked among the top ten, and an ideal location in a residential neighborhood close to Manhattan makes Pratt a top choice for students interested in professional programs in architecture, art, design, or writing. With so many programs from which to choose, students often major in one discipline and take electives in several others, exploring all their artistic interests.

    Pratt's 1,049 faculty members are successful practicing professionals who ensure the currency of the curriculum and connect students with internships and often jobs. The network of jobs for graduates stretches across the country and around the world, reflecting Pratt's vast alumni base with over 30,000 graduates. The Career Services Office provides students with online and in-person assistance with portfolios, resumes, interview skills, and the job search, listing hundreds of jobs online for the convenience of students and alumni.

    The Brooklyn campus offers students 25 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, historic buildings, outstanding studio facilities, five residence halls, an athletic center, varsity sports, and a contemporary sculpture park, recognized by Public Art Review as one of the 10 best campus art collections in the country.

NOTE 1: "Full-Time Equivalent" is the common way to measure the relative size of colleges. This adjusts for differences in the percentage of part-time students (or faculty). For example: one full-time student = 1 FTE; three half-time students = 1.5 FTE, etc. NOTE 2: Retention ≈ graduation rates are calculated using "First-Time, Full-Time Freshmen" as required by the U.S. Department of Education. In schools with large transfer populations, these rates can vary quite a bit from year to year. NOTE 3: Geographic distribution is reported for first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates. NOTE 4: Includes all institutional scholarships and grants, but does not include College Work Study or third party awards. NOTE 5: Data presented is drawn from the most recent school year available.
