    Department Summary
    The Department of Architecture aims to play a critical role in the repair of the natural environment, in the regeneration of communities, and in the elevation of the human spirit. Our department develops its strong reputation for designing sustainable environments by focusing on people at the center: creating inclusive, equitable communities that prioritize the health and well-being of inhabitants. We believe that buildings are grounded in places and cultures, and that architects gain credibility to the extent that their work is relevant to the real needs of clients, communities, and the natural world. It is a department in which learning, research and professional activity inform each other, collaboration is encouraged, and new ideas and established traditions are constantly reinforcing each other.

    The Architecture Department is located within the College of Design in the School of Architecture and Environment (SAE) which includes the Interior and Landscape Architecture Departments and the Historic Preservation Program. SAE offers doctoral degree programs in architecture and landscape architecture; fully accredited graduate and undergraduate professional degrees in architecture, interior architecture, and landscape architecture; graduate degrees in historic preservation; and concurrent graduate degree programs across the units.
