The College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning at the University of Cincinnati is charged with undergraduate and graduate education in the design, environmental, and art disciplines. It is committed to responsible change and development in those disciplines. The College is committed to excellence in teaching and learning, research, and creative works. It is committed to share the benefits of these activities with the University, the allied professions and the general community.
The College shares the universal concerns of higher education: the discovery, identification, preservation and dissemination of knowledge; the education of people in search of a rich and meaningful existence; and the creation, study, integration and interpretation of design and art. These concerns are implemented through works and studies which are academically rigorous, aesthetically superior, technically sound, and socially responsible.
The College is unique in this country. Since the turn of the century, programs have grown in quality and diversity. Today the excellence and range of curriculum, the professional practice (co-op) experiences, the quality of students, and the scholarly and creative achievements of faculty are and will continue to be the College's major strengths. Graduate degrees are offered in Design, Architecture, Art Education, Art History, Fine Arts, Community Planning, and Regional Development Planning (PhD). Undergraduate degrees are offered in Fashion Design, Graphic Design, Digital Design, Industrial Design, Architecture, Interior Design, Art History, Fine Arts, Urban Planning, Urban Studies/Administration, and Urban Studies.
The College anticipates, identifies, and catalyzes change in areas of special concern to the professions with which it is allied. Participation in local, regional, national, and international forums provides an agenda to structure the substantive aspects of teaching, research, and creative endeavors in the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning.
