Course-Based Travel

The School of Architecture and Planning is constantly considering how it can adapt programs to enhance students’ academic experience. Over the years, this philosophy as motivated the school’s leadership to bring semester-long programs to Barcelona, Turkey, Israel, and Finland, to name a few of the course-based travel opportunities we have offered.

Additionally, CUArch offers a variety of other travel opportunities for students. Studios and other courses often supplement the in-class learning experience with opportunities for both domestic and foreign travel. Opportunities include a Japan/China Study Program giving students exposure to the architecture, gardens, and urban design of Asian cultures, and week-long workshops at Casa Malaparte in Capri, Italy, exploring the connection of architecture and landscape.
