The Bachelor of Science Degree in Architecture and Sustainability teaches students to embrace sustainability and community planning principles and incorporate a set of practices and way of thinking about the sustainable development of the built environment.
Juniors and seniors are matched with practicing architects who serve as mentors for the academic year. Architects offer students one-on-one time for project feedback, portfolio and resume advice, and professional guidance.
Fourth-year Architecture and Sustainability students participate in the Small Town Studio experience. Small Town Studio brings together teachers, students, professionals, and community members from diverse backgrounds to address a range of design and planning problems involving environmental, social, and economic issues. Small Town Studio is unique among architectural schools in its focus on rejuvenating the fabric of small towns.
