Exterior requirements...interior and systems...creativity...problem solving. If you're passionate about these types of challenges, the 4+2 dual degree could be right up your alley (or hallway or duct work).


The award-winning Art + Architecture Building, where you'll spend time in open, collaborative studios equipped with your own workstation and high-res monitor, is just one learning space. You'll explore in the Fab Lab, perhaps on the CNC router or water-jet cutter, and you'll learn in seminars, field trips and onsite visits.

The lines are blurring as design professionals from across various disciplines now collaborate at the beginnings of projects for the good of their clients. Professionals with expertise in more than one discipline stand out.

These two fully accredited degrees lead to career opportunities beyond what one can do alone. Graduates are securing fulfilling employment in a variety of areas, and because they have proven expertise in both Interior Architecture and Architecture, they are ahead of the pack.

And, just to make sure our students are positioned to be hired, we hold a Career Day every year, where more than 50 design firms from across the country pay to attend just to speak with you.
