About

The Architecture Program at University of San Diego is embedded in the liberal arts education that constitutes the core of the College of Arts and Sciences. 

Overview

As such, all courses in the Architecture Program at University of San Diego, be they studios, lectures, or seminars, teach our undergraduate students the skills of critical thinking and argumentative reasoning based on evidence, and encourage curiosity and free inquiry.

Students learn to recognize, conceive, and manipulate relationships between form, function, structure, and materiality, in order to produce spaces endowed with utilitarian, aesthetic, and affective value.

Students engage different modes of representation, both graphic and verbal, in both digital and material formats; students explore these modes of representation to produce new perspectives and new meaning.

Learning Outcomes

Students will demonstrate competency in reading and producing architectural drawings, making physical models and/or producing 2D and 3D digital models. They will demonstrate proficiency in communicating their ideas using techniques and conventions of architectural representation.
