The studio faculty is made up of practicing architects rather than pure academics, which allows students a window into the real life of an architect as well as options for pursuing professional internships outside of school. Over four years of core design studio, students build a robust set of techniques and sensibilities for making and appreciating architecture. In their fifth year they produce a thesis project, which takes a position in relation to contemporary architectural discourse and includes a highly developed presentation. The B.Arch program includes a range of coursework in the arts and humanities, including art, art history, literature, new models of understanding nature, sociology, the history of civilization, philosophy, rhetoric and debate, film, and computation. Included in the curriculum is a series of master classes taught by international figures in their respective areas of expertise. Graduates leave the program with a portfolio of sophisticated work, prepared to either enter professional practice or continue on to higher education in the world’s most competitive graduate programs. The B.Arch program is accredited by NAAB (the National Architectural Accrediting Board). [-]
