The Undergraduate Architecture Program is a five year First Professional Degree Program which prioritizes professional skills together with inventive design and critical thinking. At Pratt, undergrads learn what architecture means for them over the course of 5 years. Our program is accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) requiring a minimum of five years of study. Most states require that individuals intending to become architects hold an accredited degree.  Our program continues to be ranked among the top 10 nationally and in the top 5 regionally by Design Intelligence.

4:00pm: Welcome from Erika Hinrichs, Chair of Undergraduate Architecture

A representative will also be on hand from the Center for Art, Design and Community Engagement K-12 to discuss the new after-school class in Architecture beginning in the 2015-2016 school year. There will be no cost to attend, and applicants must be entitled to free/reduced lunch to be eligible.

Parents and guidance counselors are welcome but due to limited space must remain in the auditorium during the tours.
