Education 

Columbia University, New York, NY, US, Master of Advanced Architectural Design

The Master of Science degree in Advanced Architectural Design is a three-semester, post-professional program that provides outstanding young professionals—who already hold a Bachelor of Architecture or Master of Architecture—the opportunity to conceptualize design as a critical practice that shapes the world’s technological, relational, and environmental evolutions.

California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, Pomona, CA, US, BArch, Bachelor of Architecture

The Architecture program at Cal Poly Pomona emerged from the creative and practical incubator of Los Angeles, which has long encouraged experimentation as it continually reinvents itself. Our Department also owes its diverse population and perspectives about the practice of architecture to the multicultural demographics of Southern California and the broad spectrum of creative opportunities found in the region. Experimental movements in architecture, along with the influences of high-tech, film, aerospace, and the region’s real estate development economy, are manifest in the department curriculum. The program begins with a core foundation in design, followed by the technical training necessary for the practice of architecture. At the upper division, students explore electives, topic studios, and culminating projects that range from the theoretical to the practical. Many students focus on sustainability, preservation, urban design, healthcare, education, and hospitality design. Along this journey students build awareness of cultural phenomena, and emerging fabrication and construction techniques, which enriches their work, leading to a variety of careers in architecture.
