The School of Architecture is dedicated to the professional education of those who will design, build, and conserve the built environment. We offer four undergraduate architecture programs and two minors in Architectural Studies.
We offer several professional and post-professional degree programs for students interested in pursuing architecture at the graduate level, dependent on their level of prior academic background.
At the School of Architecture and Planning, we are committed to being stewards of the good, the beautiful, and the true. Drawing on centuries of design wisdom and inspiration from classical to emerging styles, we strive to build planned environments and sustainable spaces that serve the betterment of society, all in the heart of the nation’s capital and the epicenter of design excellence.
By the end of each semester, our students present their work to an outside jury. Here you can see what our talented students are designing and imagining for our future.
