Graduate Art and Design Education at Pratt Institute (Teacher Preparation)
Pratt Institute’s department of Art and Design Education offers a 38-credit (three-semester) MS in Art and Design Education (Initial Certification) that prepares artists and designers as accomplished educators who can work effectively with pupils in diverse cultural contexts and apply interdisciplinary perspectives in a variety of educational settings, including schools, museums, and community organizations. Students work collaboratively with their peers, community members, and professionals in the field, while they learn to develop lessons and construct environments that promote critical inquiry and creative practice. Students engage in individual and community practices as artists, educators, and researchers. The department also offers a 34-credit MS in Art and Design Education (Professional Certification) for students with initial certification (formerly provisional), and a 24-credit Advanced Certificate in Art and Design Education for students with an MFA. All programs are housed on Pratt’s beautifully landscaped, 25-acre grassy campus, located in Brooklyn, New York.

Students learn to conceive and develop educational experiences in a reciprocal relationship with community and cultural organizations. They are encouraged to address complex social issues, to experiment with new ideas and materials, and to consider themselves collaborators and partners in addressing the possible role of art and design in social change and transformation. The department also has a long and distinguished history of community-based practice. The department’s Saturday Art School has served as a community-based laboratory for teacher training, and it currently serves more than 400 pupils of all ages and backgrounds from Brooklyn’s diverse communities and provides scholarships for many families who have limited resources.
