School of Architecture

  • Student working on a model.
  • Students watching instructor.
  • Students reviewing a design.

The School of Architecture sees its mission as preparing students for lifelong critical engagement in the art and science of architecture.  Our academic community believes that knowing how to build is a matter of science and technology, but knowing what to build is a question of morality, ethics and aesthetic responsibility. 

As architects, we strive to play an essential and innovative role in enhancing the human condition.  The School of Architecture empowers students to critically engage the complexities of society and the natural environment by instilling the fundamental principles of design and inspiring a spirit of exploration and creative experimentation in shaping the built environment.
