Overview

Buildings and other physical spaces created by architects combine design innovation and aesthetic with the laws of gravity and the requirements of constructability. Architects create unique and highly inventive realities that emphasize organization, proportion, and beauty, as well as material properties, budgets, and structural systems.

The Architecture program at Marywood University focuses on acquiring the skills needed to be eligible to become a licensed architect, such as designing buildings and understanding their impact on physical, aesthetic, social, and ecological environments.

Program Overview

Students benefit from the University’s liberal arts core curriculum. These liberal arts courses provide the foundation for a profession in which social responsibilities are integral to the practice of architecture. 

In addition to courses in the social sciences, math, history, science, religion, and a foreign language, students are exposed to courses in critical thinking, writing, and literature. The curriculum integrates these core competencies with professional course requirements, including architecture topics in structures, environmental science, building systems and other areas of building technology. Ten design studios, each one semester long, serve as the continuous place of exploration and synthesis.
