The 33 credit, three-semester Post-Professional Architecture and Urban Design MS at Pratt Institute, (summer, fall, spring — Brooklyn campus only) begins with an intensive summer semester concentrating in design methodology, architectural media, and urban-based theory.


The Architecture and Urban Design second semester design studio at Pratt Institute speculates on a select site at a large scale and is complemented by seminars that enrich a disciplinary understanding of the pertinent subjects and methods. 

Learning outcomes

The “Culminating Project” is the capstone of the program where (in semester three) students galvanize the work from earlier semesters within the GAUD Directed Research framework. Here, students directly engage members of the broader New York City community in an extra-disciplinary setting, produce a booklet, and participate in one or more exhibitions, which offer the opportunity to gauge the value of their work among world-leading thinkers and designers. The specific site and subjects of the studios vary on an annual basis and students may be required to work in teams in semester two and/or three.
