What should I do with my Degree?

The School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation grants graduate degrees in Historic Preservation, Architecture and Real Estate Development, as well as a Ph.D. program in Urban and Regional Planning and Design. At the undergraduate level you can get a Bachelor of Science Degree in Architecture.  But, what do you do with one of these? You could pursue the Architectural License, but you could also go into industrial design, or be an urban planner, or civil engineer.  For encouragement and consideration of the various options now open to you, please read Dr. Lee Waldreps’ brief and informative article titled, “Architecture and Beyond: Opportunities Abound”.

 

Remember, you are always learning people skills, communication and collaboration skills, and these will serve you well for any job.

Happenings around the School

The Great Space is undergoing its fall transformation as the home of the Comprehensive Studio models.

The Comprehensive Studio, ARCH 600, a graduate level design studio, has been working with structural mechanical and lighting consultants to design a Library.  Now, the time has come to build the large scale model, at 1/2″ = 1′-0. Check out more pictures at the School’s Flickr page.

Meanwhile, the ARCH 412 students were asked to demonstrate an understanding of structures and/or structural principles by means other than their homework and class quizzes.  The students designed and fabricated arches, plaster domes, and several versions of a model shelf for the School’s mezzanine wall.
