An architectural education is challenging and comprehensive, combining a liberal arts education with polytechnic education. It prepares students to self-actualize and provides them with the skill sets they need for success, including ingenuity, collaboration and problem-solving. Most students seek the traditional career path working in an architectural office, but many also pursue careers or work in related fields, such as:

  • Interior design, urban design, product design, fashion design, set design
  • Web design, graphic design
  • Construction management, building, development
  • Education
