Architects create the built environment. They synthesize issues of human need, environment setting, building technology, visual perception and aesthetic theory to create buildings and spaces where people live, work, shop, learn, worship, play and entertain. The SCAD architecture program prepares students to be multi-specialist professionals with a vast range of technical and creative skills.
