What is the Architecture program?
Architecture is the art and science of designing buildings and other physical structures... Architecture is also a profession, and as in all professions, the required training begins in college, traditionally in the freshman year. Students who are serious about becoming an Architect are advised to declare a major in architecture as early as possible.
What will I learn?
As an architecture student, you will study a broad range of subjects, including design, graphics and media presentation, drawing, computer applications, architecture history, writing and methods and materials of construction. Students who study architecture in college may go on to become licensed architects, or they can apply their learning to a related profession.
What can I do with this course of study?
