Architecture is uniquely situated to wrestle with these issues. Architects work collaboratively to engage and synthesize broad bodies of knowledge in the design of solutions to these challenges. Architects today must be well-educated critical-thinkers and problem-solvers who possess and can effectively apply highly refined aesthetic and technical knowledge.


The School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation offers a graduate program leading to the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) accredited Master of Architecture degree. The Architecture Program (ARCH) seeks to change the world through innovative architectural and urban design pedagogies, research, and practice that transforms place at all scales and improves the quality of life. In the course of our mission, we instigate change through teaching, experience, and scholarly activity, which prepares the next generation of broadly educated, highly-skilled architects and designers to be problem seekers/solvers in collaborative learning and professional environments. The Program offers a rich and demanding mix of architectural and urban design studios, architectural history and theory, and architectural science and technology. Electives in architecture and related fields are available in the curriculum.
