Integrated and Personalized
The discipline of design and its fields of architecture, planning, landscape architecture and environmental conservation/preservation deal with formulating solutions to many of the problems people face in their homes, communities, cities and geographic regions. Architecture focuses on the design of buildings and the spaces between buildings, while planning is concerned with the larger scale of neighborhoods, cities and regions. Landscape architecture and environmental conservation/preservation focus on both of these scales.
The architects, landscape architects, urban designers, and planners of today’s successful firms work in multi-disciplinary teams. The College of Architecture and Planning (CAP) follows this approach with an Integrative Design vision. Your study path exposes you to a variety of disciplines while allowing you to choose an area of emphasis and explore your personal interests.
Just approved in September 2012, the Bachelor of Science in Architecture program is admitting transfer students to start classes in January 2013.
