Program Philosophy

Our Vision

We empower people to improve lives and communities through information, knowledge, and culture.

Our Mission

Our mission is to lead the information field, through teaching and research, in making connections with the arts, culture, and technology. We create knowledge, encourage knowledge sharing, and educate creative, critical, and socially responsible professionals who participate in, contribute to, and improve the information society.


Situated on the border of Chelsea and Greenwich Village, Pratt Manhattan Center serves as a lively learning environment with convenient and easy access to some of the most renowned cultural institutions in New York City. 

Most of our classes are held in one of our many specialized labs and seminar/lab classrooms, which are all equipped with the latest computers (both Mac and PC) and are designed for interactive and participatory learning.
