Our mission is to provide students with focused, intensive training in the disciplines of architecture and landscape architecture, and the tools to bring that expertise to bear on effective global engagement.

Architects play a critical role in solving the world’s most complex problems—from climate change to urban density, social and economic diversity to cultural preservation. The School of Architecture’s undergraduate and graduate programs aim to furnish each student with a deep understanding of the field’s fundamentals while developing a holistic perspective of architecture’s vast scope and impact. Our graduates leave ready to engage the evolving challenges of society and our physical environment.
