About the Program

Mankind has been designing and building permanent structures for about twelve thousand years, and these structures have come to dominate the environment that most people inhabit. The architect faces an exciting challenge: to understand the sometimes competing needs of individuals and groups, the need to protect our natural environment, the technical requirements of buildings and structures, the role of economics, and the importance of designing projects that not only meet these quantifiable needs but that also inspire and delight us.
In the twenty-first century, the value of green/sustainable design is becoming more and more obvious and is an important part of our curriculum. We also offer rich classes in architectural design, drafting and presentation, architecture as a profession, computer aided design, and history of architecture.
Courses in the Architecture Department are designed to serve students who aspire to transfer to other schools of architecture by giving them a sound basis in critical thinking and fundamental knowledge of the discipline, to offer a two year degree option for those who wish to achieve a solid base of knowledge and skills for work in architecture or related fields, and to present learning opportunities to those whose interest in architecture is directed toward more personal rather than career goals.
