Student & Graduate Reviews (3)

4 out of 5
Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

I learned so much at college, met so many amazing, thoughtful, diverse people, and learned how to live independently in a new city. However, colleges in the US need to be more affordable.

Degree: Industrial Design
Graduation Year: 2016

There are a few things you need to know if you are considering Pratt Institute for your Masters of Industrial Design. 1) You will study under wonderfully brilliant professors. Professors like Bruce Hannah not only have developed and designed a long list of important products, but are well connected within the design community. If you are committed to learning and working with these professors, you have great professional opportunities in your future. 2) Pratt Institute is not a technical school. Although, there are opportunities to learn technical skills, the industrial design program focuses on a lot on aesthetics and the design process. If you want to be taught how to make things, I might look to another Masters program. There are production methods and prototyping courses available, but the 3D design course work is the most highly boasted part of Pratt's Industrial Design program. 3)The campus is beautiful and there are an immense amount of resources. There are multiple 3D printers, laser cutters, CNC machines, wood shops, metal shops, ceramics shops, computer labs (with every program imaginable), printing centers, studios, etc. You can use all of these resources for free ( although the materials aren't). This is great for developing your own work while in school ;) 4) This school is very expensive. They don't offer that much financial help.

3 out of 5
Degree: Education, General
Graduation Year: 2013

Pratt's foundation year is the main reason I wanted to go there. I think the school really delivers when it comes to foundations in art and art history. I also enjoyed the small class sizes once I got further into my major. Some methods (art history department especially) are outdated and you don't get much from that experience. Financial aid information is terrible and administration doesn't seem to do much unless you really push and research on your own. Some teachers are aloof but most are wonderful sources of inspiration and push you to do your best work. The work load is tough and really demands your focus and attention - this is a good thing! The school itself has a ton of resources from wood shops to computer labs, a ceramics studio, printmaking studios, and metal working studios. It's a very LBGTQ friendly school which is great and there's lots of creative clubs and a few activities throughout the year so you can be social. There's a gym and yoga classes you can take as well. I didn't live on campus so I can't speak to that experience but I've visited a couple of dorms and, well, they're dorms. As for my program, it was hard, it was demanding and it was great.
