Tulane University, New Orleans, LA, US, MArch, Master's of Architecture
In Tulane’s rigorous, five-year Masters of Architecture program, we were taught the fundamentals of how architecture can engage real challenges in society. The school of architecture helps mold a new generation of leaders to make positive contributions and social change through design. The School of Architecture is unique in the way we have embraced the creative potential associated with the challenges and opportunities of rebuilding the social, physical, and economic fabric of New Orleans. Fundamentally ingrained in community engagement, Tulane allowed me to work with community groups, build actual structures in under-developed neighborhoods, develop a vision for the future, partner with non-for-profit agencies, and design buildings that will serve a noble purpose. Ultimately, we garnered a deep comprehension of the relevance of connecting our skills with pressing community and global issues.
