University Studies - BS, Global Arts, Planning, Design and Construction Concentration

The Global Arts, Planning Design and Construction concentration is an interdisciplinary course of study that integrates multiple aspects of the built environment. The course offerings are from all of the professional undergraduate programs within the College of Architecture and are intended to give students an understanding of the interplay of  professions that are required to work as a team in order to successfully complete built environment projects. These foundation courses are coupled with a required study abroad experience. All students in the College of Architecture are required to participate in a semester away experience that serves to expand the context of their education. The benefit of this experience is integrated into the concentration at a smaller scale.
