New Bachelor of Design in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Urbanism program to launch in fall 2020

Jul 25, 2019

Program to begin accepting applications in September

The School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture is excited to announce the launch of our new undergraduate program, the Bachelor of Design in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Urbanism. This new direct-entry degree program will begin accepting applications in September 2019 with the first class starting in fall 2020.

The interdisciplinary curriculum of the Bachelor of Design explores the connectedness of design across multiple scales, from the body to the city. The program teaches students to observe the impact of design on society and the environment, as well as how space and form can effect cultural change. A distinctive combination of courses in architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, and entrepreneurship throughout the duration of the program equips students with a unique skill set that is broadly applicable to many future paths.

Students have ample opportunities to combine classroom-based learning with immersive design studio and construction/fabrication experiences, community-based fieldwork opportunities, and the opportunity to study or gain work experience abroad through the Coordinated International Experience (CIE) program or the Co-operative Education Program.

With the launch of the Bachelor of Design program, we will no longer be accepting applications for the Bachelor of Environmental Design program. We are incredibly proud of the over 400 students that have made the ENDS program one of the most well-regarded undergraduate design programs in the country. We look forward to continuing this legacy with the Bachelor of Design program.
