About

Students in the Architecture programe from The Ohio State University learn to understand formal and spatial relationships and the impact of ideas based on the research and analysis of cultural, social, political, economic and environmental contexts. They experiment with materials, structures and building systems to gain an understanding of design.

Overview

Study abroad

Students can participate in one of the up to seven study abroad programs annually offered by the Knowlton School. Recent programs include study in Cuba, Chile, Ghana, Italy, Japan, Taiwan and travel tours throughout multiple European countries that focus on topics from the development of modern architecture to sustainable urban planning practices.

Knowlton students may apply for one of the school’s Architecture Research Travel Awards (ARTA) in order to pursue independent travel and research abroad.

Possible careers

Ohio State’s four year, pre-professional Architecture programe from The Ohio State University prepares students to continue their studies in an accredited Master of Architecture program. Ohio State students consistently enroll in the nation’s best architecture graduate programs, including Harvard University, Yale University, University of Pennsylvania, Columbia University, Rice University, University of Michigan, Sci-ARC and UCLA. 

The core components of becoming a licensed architect include:

education (earning an accredited Master of Architecture degree)

experience (documented though the National Council of Architectural Registration Board’s Architectural Experience Program)

examination (completion of the Architect Registration Exam)

Many architects specialize in design, while others become adept at managing, marketing and other aspects of professional practice. Architecture firms are also involved in real estate development and construction, a form of practice known as “design/build.” Local, state and federal governments and private entities also employ architects to plan and oversee the work of design and planning firms.

Many architects combine private practice with teaching or architectural journalism. Others trained as architects enter allied fields of planning, engineering, real estate development and construction, or develop graphic, industrial or interior design specialties. Theater, film and television industries attract architecture graduates, as do museums, display firms, and architectural product and materials manufacturers.

Programme Structure

Course Overview:

  • During the first year, students must complete foundation courses (Architecture 2300 and 2310) and establish a foundation in the design of the built environment through a series of design projects that highlight the disciplines of architecture, landscape architecture and urban design.
  • Second-year students complete courses in architectural history and graphical representation. They complete projects that emphasize techniques of modeling and drawing accompanied by critical inquiry.
  • Third-year students develop an understanding of architecture as a cultural practice through projects with collective, large-scale, institutional programs on specific sites. Students complete courses in building construction, structures and systems and join fourth-year students in elective studios spring semester.
  • Fourth-year students complete large-scale, hybrid programs on complex sites.
