At this Architecture (Post-Professional) program at Pratt Institute, students directly engage members of related industries and the arts in an extra-disciplinary setting, produce a booklet, and participate in one or more exhibitions that offer the opportunity to fabricate portions of their design proposals at full scale. The specific site and subjects of the studios vary on an annual basis.


The 36-credit, three-semester (summer, fall, spring — Brooklyn campus only) post-professional Architecture (Post-Professional) program at Pratt Institute begins with an intensive summer semester concentrating in design methodology, architectural media, and materially-based theory. 

Learning outcomes

The second semester design studio allows students to select an area of design expertise (visualization or fabrication) and is complemented by seminars that enrich a disciplinary understanding of the pertinent subjects. The “Culminating Project” is the capstone of the program where (in the third semester) students galvanize the work from earlier semesters within the GAUD Directed Research framework.
