Curriculum

The curriculum is divided into three segments:

Segment I: Foundation. Students in Foundation acquire beginning knowledge, abilities, and understanding in both professional and liberal studies education necessary for all undergraduates. For the first year this is in a transdisciplinary setting.

Segment II: Integration. Students explore - in depth and breadth - the field of architectural design. Emphasis is on integrating skills, knowledge, and understanding. For this reason courses are sometimes paired. For instance a student designing a building for studio will use it as a case study for a building technology class.

Segment III: Synthesis. The Bachelor of Science in Architecture to M. Arch track appeals to many undergraduates because it concludes with a year-long self-directed project. At the end of the program, students are able to draw upon a wealth of academic, professional and extracurricular knowledge and tie it together through an in-depth architectural project. These projects are as individualistic as their makers because students have freedom to research their particular passions and bring them to a project they invent for themselves.
