Pratt’s graduate program in interior design was ranked first in the country for the second year in a row, based on surveys completed by industry professionals and made available through monthly architecture and design journal, DesignIntelligence. Pratt’s undergraduate interior design programs were ranked second in the nation.
The rankings are part of DI’s 2010 “America’s Best Architecture and Design Schools” issue, which it has published annually since 2000. The journal ranked design programs from throughout the United States based on surveys completed by professionals in architecture and design firms. These are the only school rankings based exclusively on companies’ perceptions of how well schools prepare their graduates for professional practice.
DesignIntelligence is issued by the Design Futures Council (DFC), a global network of design community professionals, including leaders of architecture and design firms, manufacturers, and service providers. Founded in 1995, the DFC aims to advance the design community by exploring trends, changes, and new opportunities in design and architecture.
