Overview

Working closely with highly accomplished faculty, Digital Arts students at Pratt Institute apply contemporary practices in the fine arts and creative industries to the production of 2-D and 3-D digital animation, motion arts, and interactive artworks. 

Students are expected to integrate their required studies in the liberal arts and sciences into the development of substantive artworks. Bachelors emerge prepared for graduate study or professional work and are poised to make meaningful and culturally notable contributions in the digital arts.

In Pratt’s Department of Digital Arts, undergraduates will develop aesthetic finesse, technological skill, conceptual sophistication related to digital media, and thorough comprehension of the potential of art and technology. Graduates demonstrate an expertise in their discipline, a unique voice in their medium and a knowledge of historical works in art and technology. Students then learn to create professional documentation and presentation skills to launch their careers in the Digital Arts.
