1. Pratt Institute School of Architecture建築學院
http://www.pratt.edu/academics/architecture/ 提供有三年的建築碩士,另外還有兩年的都市設計碩士。因歷史悠久,據說是紐約建築界的地頭蛇。系館有特別設計,被報導過喔!

2. School of Art and Design藝術與設計學院

這個學院包括了pratt的藝術與設計科系,分成非常多種,要仔細看喔!上圖為comd自己的系網blog。

http://www.pratt.edu/academics/art_design/

2-1. Department of Art and Design Education 藝術與設計教育
2-2. Department of Creative Arts Therapy 藝術治療
2-3. Department of Arts and Cultural Management 藝術與文化管理
2-4. Department of Graduate Communications/Packaging Design 平面與包裝設計(簡稱為comd)
這個系主要是以傳統的平面設計為主,網站或是多媒體設計並沒有特別注重。不那麼科技導向。系上自己的網站為http://prattgradcomd.com/,該系在2011年秋季會開始mfa學位的課程!

2-5. Department of Digital Arts數位藝術
這個系之前叫做CGIM:Computer Graphic & Interactive Media,在台灣有蠻多數位或是視傳相關科系的老師出自這個系,阿福站長在2001年9月得到該系獎學金,讀到2003年畢業。過去這個系分成三大項:動畫、互動、裝置藝術。現在較偏向裝置藝術與互動兩大方向。較不注重動畫部份了。

2-6. Department of Design Management設計管理
這個系是一路走來街愛伯唸的系。主要是偏工設類的設計管理課程。在留美雙週報有介紹過,它的申請門檻較高,基本上希望招收有一定職場經驗的本科系生為主﹙至少三年﹚,要兩年共42學分才能畢業。

2-7. Department of Fashion Design

2-8. Department of Fine Arts純藝術
這個系在東岸是非常優秀的純藝術科系,裡面主修分得很系,從油畫、水彩到攝影、版畫等都有,而且大學部的訓練非常紮實,強調觀察、想法與手繪的呈現。知名的台灣校友有yihsin吳怡欣,可看她的作品集網站

2-9. Department of the History of Art & Design 藝術與設計史系

2-10. Department of Industrial Design 工業設計
該系算是東岸工業設計人的主要產出地,師資與課程都很紮實,學校有自己的工廠,也有和企業合作。台灣也有不少工業設計師出自這個系。比較知名的校友有以W1N得到if金獎的蕭銘凱。

2-11. Department of Interior Design 室內設計
該系分兩種課程,一種是給非本科生唸的Qualifying program,要修68學分。另一種是本科生唸的Master program,修48學分。

[+]FAQ 以下是站長阿福在2000.09和Pratt ComD畢業生Paul Yang的8個問答: (中文是阿福站長翻譯的)

1.你在普瑞特的老師如何?

我覺得教授如何?告訴妳ㄅㄟ,在米國啊,教授不會真正教你東西的,他們使用非常米式的教學,讓你擁有自己的思想與點子,但是當你的觀念不是很好的時候,他們會告訴你,還有,他棉總是告訴你要自己去唸書,所以我大部分都是從書上學,而不是跟教授學的,不過我真的有些在設計上的好點子是從教授那邊學到的,所以,這真的很難說,我的這些教授是好還是壞哩~~

how do I think the professor? tell you what, in American , teacher doesn’t really teach. they are all in very American way to make you have your own thinking and idea, but when your thinking is bad then they will told you that is not good. and they always tell you to read the books by yourself, so I learned anything so far from my self from the book not from the professor, but I did get some good idea of design from the professor too. So it’s hard to say they are good or bad.

2.當你還是學生的時候,找工作容易嗎?我是說,跟設計和藝術有關的工作.

[國際學生]依法是不能在學時打工的喔!!不過如果你拿的是H1簽證,或是學生實習課程時,你才有辦法在大蘋果市工作,對於主修CGIM-3d動畫的學生來說,畢業後在大蘋果市找工作真的粉不容易!!去洛杉磯找工作還比較輕鬆,不過如果你專業是網頁設計,我告訴你,根本不用找工作啦!! 工作會自動來找你喔!!

THE INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS can’t work when you are still studying in school, that is the law….but if you get the H1 visa or student practical trng then you can work in NYC, for CGIM-3d animation major, is really hard to get a job in NYC-NEW YORK CITY after you graduated, many animation jobs are in LA, but if you do the web design, then I can tell you this, the company are looking for you, and you don’t need to go search the company here.

3.為什麼普瑞特在某些設計領域是提供M.S.的學位而不是M.F.A or M.A.?

因為MS只需要54學分就畢業了,但是MFA要60學分,在普瑞特有許多設計課程不只教你如何設計,也教你市場行銷與管理,所以你也需要唸設計史,藝術史或其他課程,就我知道的,如果你要主修CGIM而且拿MFA,許多課程是實作設計課程,所以你做作業的時間保證比唸書多!! 嘿~~你知道我在說什麼嗎?現在你了解有什麼不同了吧!還有另外一件事,在普瑞特,MA的意思是建築碩士,不是人文藝術碩士,知道ㄅㄟ?至於MFA是創作藝術碩士,我想這你很了解啦…MS是Master of Science,對了,在紐約的視覺藝術學院SVA提供許多設計課程是給要修MFA的學生,因為他們需要修完六十個學分,還有你會要做許多許多的作業…了解吧?

ok for the MS and MFA degree question… because you only need 54 credits to finish the MS degree, if you want to get MFA then you must have to take 60 credits. and in Pratt many design major they are not only teach you how to design, they also teach you how to marketing and management and you also need to read like history of design, history of art, and some the other classes…as I know if you want to take the MFA degree in CGIM in Pratt, many classes are studio class, so YOU work and design more then you study from books. so you know what I’m saying right? you know what’s different now right. and the other thing, in Pratt MA is Master of Architecture, not Master of Art, got it? MFA is Master of Fine Art, I believe that you know it well. MS is Master of Science….ok in SVA support design major as MFA because they need 60 credits to finish it, and you will do a lot of design works too.

4.我聽說過有些學生的TOEFL不到550分.但是普瑞特學院接受他們的申請了,你曾聽說過這樣的事兒嗎?

這是真的,有些學生進了普瑞特但托福沒有550分,原因如下

第一呢~是因為你非常幸運,這學期沒有足夠的學生申請普瑞特,所以他們需要學生,所以他們接受了你,不然咧! 要是這學期有足夠的學生申請普瑞特,他們就會先踢掉托福不夠的…

第二個理由就是你的作品集真的太讚了,讓他們覺得非收你不可,不管你的英文是好是壞(因為反正你都得先考入學的ESL考試,然後上普瑞特的ESL英文補救課程)

ye that is true, some students did get in Pratt without TOEFL 550, there are some reasons, The first reason is that you are very lucky because not there is enough student who want get in to Pratt in that semester, and they need students, so you will get in. Therefore, if you apply when many student try to get in at the same semester then sorry they will look for your TOEFL score first to throw you away from the accept list. The sec is because your portfolio is really great let them feel they have to accept you in, no matter your English is good or bad.( because however you will need to take the English exam, if not pass then you will get in to ESL in Pratt)

5.你覺得校園安全如何?

誰在紐約是安全的啊??…只要非常小心,不要半夜回家,試著讓自己變成一個紐約客就好啦!!讓人們覺得你在這裡待很久了….(就不敢隨便欺負你啦)…不要拿著地鐵地圖,然後在地鐵站看或是車上看,反正地鐵站牆上就有地圖可以看啦!! 在普瑞特的校區裡是安全啦,出了校門,那可不一定!!

who is safe in NY??…just be very careful and don’t back home at midnight and u must try to be a new Yorker, so ppl knows u r here for a long time. Don’t take a subway map and watch it in the subway station or in the train…there is map in the train and subway station. go see the big map that post there. In Pratt’s campus is safety, the security is good inside campus, but not out of campus..

6.校園中的國際學生相處如何?

普瑞特這裡有好多韓國學生,至於有多少台灣學生我不太確定,但是台灣同學會蠻糟的,根本沒做什麼活動ㄇㄟ!!!差不多有三年都沒有開會或是舉行派對了,還有,普瑞特的台灣學生彼此也不太了解…

there are many Korean students here in Pratt. how many Taiwanese students here I’m not sure…but Taiwanese international students club is very sucks….they don’t do anything here. they haven’t done any meeting or party in Pratt for about 3 years. Therefore, Pratt Taiwanese students doesn’t know each other well.

7.在校外容易找房子住嗎?

不太容易喔…你可以第一個學期先住宿舍看看,然後利用暑假的時間來找房子,因為那什候有許多學生都回家了,找房子比較容易,住外面比較便宜,不過安全性比住宿舍的差很多,靠近學校的校外住處租金大約是米金350-800一個月啦,住宿舍則是米金600-900一個月,而且學校的伙食很差,所以別加入學校伙食,…或者你可付米金3000給自助餐廳…然後吃一年…不過一年內你要是沒吃到米金3000,不就浪費了嗎?另外如果你決定下一年還要吃自助餐廳,大概只要付米金2000-3000間的一個優惠價就好了

it’s not easy to find a place to live out side… u can live in dorm for a semester then find a place to live around the Pratt campus in the summer time because many students leave school at that time. It’s cheaper to live out side but also the security is not good as to live in the dorm. the rent fee is about 350-800 a month out side around school. live in dorm is about 600-900 a month. and the school’s food is really bad, so don’t join it….or u have to pay $3000 for the cafeteria, and it’s only for one year fee…if u can’t finish $3000 meal in one year then u just waste the money. The other way they will plus on next year food fee if u continue it, so that means after u join it u can’t quit.( I don’t remember it’s $2000-3000 for a year or a semester)

8.當初你為何選擇Pratt就讀?

這問題蠻好玩兒的,為什麼我要唸普瑞特…因為在那個時候(五年前)普瑞特是紐約頂尖藝術與設計學校…現在視覺藝術學院SVA比普瑞特好多了,但是SVA的學費也便宜不到哪去!!

SVA 是一所非常好的學校,我說它好是因為我申請過這家學校,而且也被接受了,在我拜訪過校園之後,那鍋電腦實驗室真是超完美,比普瑞特好多啦,在我讀過電腦實習室為主修電腦藝術的學生所開課程之後,我感覺能唸這兒真是挺棒的,所以如果你有機會參觀SVA和普瑞特的研究所畢業生秀的話,你可以自個兒比較看看,那你就知道我為什麼說SVA是個好學校啦! 另一件事,現在SVA是美國藝術與設計學校的頂尖十名,但是普瑞特只在十八或二十名,不過還有一個壞消息,在SVA你得付每學期米金1000元的費用使用電腦實驗室,如果你是主修電腦藝術的話啦!!對了~~SVA只提供MFA學位,每年差不多收50位研究生吧,我蠻榮幸我被接受申請了,不過六十個學分和 SVA的學費對我來說太貴了,所以我沒去唸…

另一件事,有些人一直說普瑞特很好很好只是為了一個原因,他們沒有好好的研究其他學校,也沒有去參觀那些學校的藝術活動,所以請原諒我不得不說,我想這樣並不算是一個好的設計科學生,因為一個好的設計科學生應該要能接受新的資訊,並持續接觸著藝術活動,在大蘋果市裡跑跑,讓思想靈活起來,而且比較一下某些事物,別老是覺得你唸的學校就一定是最好的ㄅㄟ!!!

that is a funny question, why I choose Pratt yap, because at that time Pratt was the one of top art and design school in new York in 5 years ago. But now it’s not a good school ….SVA is much better than Pratt now. but the Tuition in SVA is not cheap also..

SVA is a very good school, why I said it is good because I did apply that school and I got accepted, and after I visit the school, the computer lab is perfect, much better than Pratt, and after I read the classes that they open for the computer art students, I feel that is really good to study in. And if you get the chance to see the graduation show and you can compare it with Pratt graduate student’s works, then you will know why I say SVA is a good school. and the other thing, right now SVA is in top 10 of art and design school in the USA. but Pratt is only in 18 or 20 in USA. BUT the bad thing for SVA is you have to pay $1000 for the using the computer lab every semester, if you are in computer art major. and they support only MFA in their school, and they only accept students every year, and only 50 students for a year. so I’m proud that I can get in to the school, but 60 credits and the fee is too much for me. so that’s why I didn’t go for it. The other thing, the people who keep say Pratt is good that means one thing, he really doesn’t search the information from the other school or never go to the show. so please forgive me to say this, I think they are not a good design student because a design student must accept any new information, always follow the news, and go around NYC to get any news here to make your thinking alive, and to compare something. don’t always feel the school that you are studying which is the best.
