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.
