Communications Design M.F.A. program at Pratt Institute prepares individuals to pursue design with passion and cultural relevance. Our distinctive program emphasizes design as a means for communicating meaningful messages, organizing information, creating compelling user experiences, and effecting social change. We believe that the most intriguing and successful designers are cultural innovators who use media to inform, persuade, and entertain.
Our graduates develop voices as authors and entrepreneurs engaged in identifying and solving design problems within cross-disciplinary environments. We approach design as an agent of change—a strategy for transforming behaviors of individuals in desirable and sustainable ways.
