Graduate Architecture (First-Professional Degree) at Pratt Institute offers a three-year professional degree; two years with advanced standing for eligible students.


Year 01 introduces students to a variety of technologies, methods, and modes of approaching architecture. While all of the courses are related, they also dive deeply into their four curricular areas (Design, History-Theory, Architectural Mediums, and Building Technologies) allowing students to gain an understanding of the differing praxes that influence architectural design. Studio projects transition from a focus on the mediums and methods deployed to develop a design to a focus on the qualities, interiority, and use of a building. 

Learning outcomes
