What will I learn?

The curriculum pairs studio courses with relevant architecture history and technology courses to support the comprehensive learning experience of the student. Students engage in intensive studio projects that encourage them to seek prototypical solutions to problems in the modern city. Instruction takes place in the studio with one-on-one consultations with faculty, critiques with classmates, and formal reviews. Visiting critics participate in reviews, and there is a lecture series that brings prominent professionals on campus to discuss the work they are doing in the field.

As part of their studies, students are enrolled in two six-month co-ops. This allows students to gain real-world experience in architecture that aids them in both their academic development and in professional advancement. Co-op experience can often be applied to one’s AXP credits.

The School of Architecture offers a NAAB-accredited one-year program to our students who have successfully completed the BS degree in architecture. This allows our own students to achieve a master’s degree in an efficient and timely manner.

Applicants should note that the BS degree in architecture is not sufficient by itself to meet the academic requirement to sit for state licensure. (Most undergraduate architecture degrees are not accredited.) Students who graduate with the BS degree have the option to apply to the one-year NAAB-accredited Master of Architecture degree that is open to our BS graduates in good standing.
