Since its inception over 50 years ago, the City and Regional Planning at Pratt Institute has remained dedicated to an education that emphasizes participatory planning over top-down policy making, and advocacy over technocracy.


The mission of the City and Regional Planning at Pratt Institute is to provide a professionally- oriented education to a student body with diverse cultural, educational, and professional backgrounds. 

Using a multidisciplinary approach, City and Regional Planning teaches participatory practice as the best way to support and advocate for just, equitable communities. Students graduate equipped with the knowledge of theory, technical capacity, collaborative skills, and radical critical thinking abilities necessary to plan for ethical, healthy, resilient and inclusive communities.

Students at City and Regional Planning at Pratt Institute will:

  • demonstrate both professional competency in the planning field and the ability to independently pursue original thinking and research.
  • demonstrate a foundational understanding of planning theory and values, especially participatory planning, urban conditions and trends, especially in the community planning context; equity and sustainability at multiple scales; and a balance of theory and practice, especially with regard to the use of ideas and information.
  • demonstrate technical proficiency consistent with the highest standards of the profession, including quantitative methods, qualitative methods, and written, oral and graphic communication skills.
  • demonstrate knowledge and proficiency in planning practice, potentially with a concentration in community development, physical planning, urban sustainability, and historic preservation.
