Additional Information

The School of Design and Construction was formed in 2012 from the previous School of Architecture and Construction Management. The School consists of accredited programs in Architecture, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture and Construction Management. The school is focused on collaborative learning between disciplines through course structure and activities. Additionally, the school incorporates active design build activities that are integrated into the curriculum utilizing our digital fabrication lab. Students participate in many study tour opportunities including domestic as well as international.

The program in Architecture was the first architecture program established in the state of Washington, and the oldest of the four disciplines in the School of Design and Construction. The program existed informally beginning in April of 1907, and became official following the graduation of its first student, in 1913.

The Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies (BS Arch) is the four-year, non-accredited degree. This program provides a foundation in architecture through intensive studio and technical courses as well as integrated courses and experiences with allied disciplines. The undergraduate degree is designed for those who anticipate continuing their professional education through accredited graduate programs, or who may choose to work in architecturally related fields.

The Master of Architecture degree (M.Arch) is the NAAB-accredited professional degree. The M.Arch program provides students with opportunities to investigate critical issues involving the built environment in both studio and seminar based courses. Depending on educational background, students wishing to earn the professional M.Arch degree will be admitted on a one-, two-, or three-year time frame.
