Unlike liberal arts curricula, Pratt's writing program is not for students of writing but aspiring writers. Pratt's program takes full advantage of two local facts of life: the hothouse work ethic of Pratt's other studio programs and New York City, the literary capital of the United States (and arguably the world). Both allow Pratt to attract a writing faculty that is without parallel. Our professors are all working professional writers, happy to share their experience.
This four year undergraduate program leads to a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Writing. The attainment of this goal requires serious and sustained commitment. In contrast to traditional colleges, in which a major is often declared only in the third year of study, writing majors at Pratt begin an intensive concentration on writing in the first term of their freshman year and gradually expand it over the course of the program.
