Majors and minors in the Department of Architecture + Interior Design emphasize strong professional preparation grounded in rigorous, comprehensive liberal learning.

Small class sizes, an emphasis on independent student research, numerous opportunities for cross-disciplinary collaboration, and an impressive level of student participation in off-campus study augment and strengthen the academic programs.
