Architectural Studies combines design and liberal arts courses to give students the skills they need to understand and transform the built environment in a more sustainable and equitable way.
Our multidisciplinary curriculum exposes students to the many sides of architecture. Studio classes in architecture and art deliver ample opportunities for students to learn-by-making. Students analyze and design buildings, landscapes, and cities from around the globe using a variety of digital and analog tools. Courses in architectural history and environmental studies provide students with the basic skills and the global perspective needed for understanding the relationship between ourselves and our environment. Many students augment their architectural education in study abroad programs. Ultimately, our majors graduate with the ability to draw effectively, read critically, and design creatively.
