The Bachelor of Architecture program on the Los Angeles-Burbank campus educates students to become imaginative, entrepreneurial, and ethical leaders in the architecture profession. The five-year, nationally accredited, professional Bachelor of Architecture (BArch) degree engages questions about the built environment across a wide range of topics: building and digital technologies, communication and representation, history and theory, and design inquiry. The goal is to train students not only as architects but also as citizens. They learn to become professional architects who are designers and cultural builders responsive to the challenges of contemporary practice. The BArch takes a broadminded approach to the economic, formal, social, technological, and urban dimensions of architecture.
In addition to the core program, the faculty-based initiatives of the Architecture + Civic Engagement Center (ACE), the Arid Lands Institute (ALI), and the Julius Shulman Institute (JSI), expand academic and professional possibilities. Extensive optional study abroad programs coupled with local community outreach provide opportunities for students to directly engage people and places. Projects address relevant urban, community, and societal concerns. Students become passionate and inspired shapers of the built environment.
Design studios form the core of the architecture curriculum with applied from theoretical, technical, and liberal arts study. Students gain craftsmanship in drawing, model making, material construction, employing computer design software, digitally fabricating, and critical writing. Educated to be articulate critical thinkers and highly capable practitioners, our students regularly distinguish themselves in design competitions and scholarship awards, are valued as leaders in the workplace, and go on to elite graduate schools.
Hailing from varied backgrounds, our student body reflects Southern California itself and creates a rich atmosphere of cultural diversity. Our dynamic faculty is made up of practicing professionals and accomplished academics. A low student-to-faculty ratio fosters a spirit of collaboration and community, and, together, students and faculty share a belief in the power of architecture to affect positive change.
Minor in Urban Studies// The Urban Studies program at Woodbury University offers a minor as well as an individually tailored major degree program through Interdisciplinary Studies. It helps prepare students to engage with the enormous challenges that global urban development brings to contemporary life. According to the United Nations, an estimated 50% of the world’s population lives in cities. By 2030, that estimate is expected to rise to 60%. Through a diverse array of courses, students obtain the critical and analytical skills needed to interpret and respond to these changing urban conditions, both in the Los Angeles metropolitan area and across the globe.
The Mission of the Urban Studies program is to create a transformative educational program devoted to both the theory and practice of Urban Studies.
