From the earliest days of civilization, architecture has enabled humans to create spaces that express their deepest beliefs about their lives. The Architectural Studies track combines study of the history and theory of architecture with a rigorous sequence of studio courses in architectural design taught by practicing architects. Additional perspectives come from renowned architects in the Cameron Visiting Architects Program. While some students pursue Architectural Studies as a rewarding liberal arts major, for others it serves as a pre-professional path to an architectural career.
Architecture and the Environment
Some architectural studies majors choose to focus on architecture and the environment by declaring a joint major in architectural studies/environmental studies.
Architectural studies majors at Middlebury usually augment their on-campus study with study abroad, either in English or in a foreign language. Program possibilities include the Danish International Studies Program in Copenhagen, the Ecole Spéciale d’Architecture in Paris, University College Dublin and the Facoltà di Architettura at the Università di Ferrara, Italy.
