Basic Design and Drawing I course, the first design studio in the Basic Studies Foundation, is an introduction to architectural design, basic design theory and methodologies relating to spatial abstractions and forms. The course focuses on heuristic thinking with an emphasis on process and making. Two- and three-dimensional studio exercises develop a sensibility to design fundamentals, architectural vocabulary and design decision based on analysis and critique towards process-based learning strategies. As a continuation to the first-year courses, the role of design communications is reiterated in drawing exercises focusing on form, color theory, texture, and spatial determinants, historical precedence, sketching, orthographic projection and modeling. Prerequisite: ARCH 1342 or INTD 1342, credit or concurrent enrollment in ARCH 2303. Sophomore standing in the program. Restricted to Architecture-intended, ARCH_UNIV, Interior Design-intended, and INTD_UNIV majors.

Architecture - Undergraduate Programs

The four-year Bachelor of Science in Architecture degree is a  four-year pre-professional degree program of studies comprising, with a later two-year graduate program, the six-year Master of Architecture curriculum. This sequence, called the 4 + 2 model , has been adopted by many major universities as the most effective way of combining liberal education with professional education. It provides the basis for various career possibilities, including the professional degree of Master of Architecture or the Master of Landscape Architecture ; these advanced degrees are normally awarded after two years of graduate study (refer to the graduate catalog for details).
