The Architecture and Environmental Design (AREN) program is a four-year journey that will prepare you for a fulfilling career in architecture and related environmental design fields. We believe that the skills needed to design the spaces we inhabit come from a well-rounded education. That's why our curriculum blends science, technology, humanities, and the arts to give you a strong foundation.

Design Studio: Where Creativity Takes Flight

The cornerstone of the AREN program is the design studio. Here, you'll put your knowledge into action by tackling real-world and hypothetical design projects. This is where you'll experiment, collaborate, and refine your design skills.
