Pratt's accredited Master of Science in City and Regional Planning requires 60 credits. The schedule of classes allows for prospective students to enter in fall or spring, and complete their studies in two or three years. The core program of required courses (in the first half of study) allows students to develop an understanding of community development, land use, and sustainability issues. Electives and studios (in the second half of study) allow students to either hone or broaden their skills and knowledge. As the Demonstration of Professional Competence, students must prove their analytical and creative capacity to deal with an advanced problem in planning. The Demonstration may be a project related to a specific course, or an employment-related performance, or a thesis that makes an original contribution to the field, or even a documentary.
