Bachelor of Science in Architecture Curriculum

The curriculum is divided into foundation, integration, and synthesis. 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. Later, 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. 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.
