The New School, New York City, Bachelors, Architectural Design

The Bachelor of Fine Arts in Architectural Design is a four-year pre-professional degree program that prepares students for careers in architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, exhibition design, interior design, environmental art, and other fields that demand expertise in spatial, digital, ecological, and material design. Using representational means ranging from models to full-scale material constructs to digital animation, students conceptualize and develop architectural schemes to address environmental, cultural, and theoretical concerns.

In the design studio, students work on spatial problems that vary in scale from a room to a region. The studio is a place to exchange ideas and interact with faculty and peers. Seminar classes are another such place, providing access to tools and opportunities to develop critical thinking. Learning also takes place outside the studio, through site tours, internships, and sponsored projects. In the classroom, studio, and beyond, students become active members of a vibrant creative community, working alongside their peers studying interior, lighting, product, and environmental design.
