What will I learn?

The five-year Bachelor of Architecture program prepares students with an early interest in architecture to become leading professional practitioners. The mission is to train students as leaders in the professional practice of architecture with substantive methods of design and inquiry. The program aims to establish a student’s professional education with new forms of thinking and practice and to help students develop a lifelong relationship to their respective fields.

The five-year design sequence offers a thorough foundation in architecture integrating critical thinking, design, technology, building, representation, sustainability, and social responsibility. Firmly committed to contemporary material practices, the program is constantly integrating new technologies into the curriculum. Students are encouraged to aspire towards creative and intellectual independence as well as to commit to authentically inspired architectural research. Students at Pratt learn that architecture is a meaningful cultural contribution dedicated to the sustenance of the imagination and the necessity for material embodiment within a larger social, cultural, environmental and ethical context.
