Do you want to design a better world – one that is healthier, more sustainable, vibrant and equitable? The School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape offers a range of studies that broaden how students think about the world around them – from objects and buildings to cities and regions. Study abroad, collaborative builds, and community-engaged projects bring students together. Discover how to change the world through challenge-based learning, collaborations with industry and prototyping solutions.

Undergraduate courses and the architectural minor offer hands-on experiences, the graduate professional programs provide the accredited education required to become licensed architects, urban planners and landscape architects, and the research degrees seek to further innovation in the built environment.

Upcoming Events
