Pratt Institute’s Graduate Communications + Package Design department has been educating graphic and package designers for over 40 years. We currently offer a 60-credit Master of Fine Arts (MFA) degree and a 48-credit Master of Science (MS) degree. 

The department is located in Manhattan at 144 West 14th St., between 6th and 7th Avenues, and our student studios are four blocks north on West 18th St. The department’s faculty includes highly regarded, award-winning professional designers, authors, marketing and media specialists. The faculty are important professional contacts for the students—several have written pivotal design books and articles, and many have been been honored with design awards from prestigious arts and design organizations. A diverse body of students – over 23 countries are represented – come to Pratt to further their career in the design industry, begin a journey towards becoming a design educator, or to alter a career course. Our graduate programs provide students the opportunity to develop and refine their design process, design voice, and creative skills leading to professional competence and leadership.
