Architectural Studies

Supported by architectural historians, theoreticians, practicing architects, and the Cameron Visiting Architect program, Architectural Studies involves a rigorous curriculum involving both theory and praxis that forms a cohesive and rewarding liberal-arts major but that also can serve as a pre-professional program.
