Student works on the Notre Dame Podium at the School of Architecture

School of Architecture

The School of Architecture’s five-year program requires students to learn hand-drawing and drafting skills, while also studying architecture through formal ordering, traditional construction, and architectural history. It’s also the only program in the United States that includes a full year of study in Rome’s historic center, during which our students study the city’s structures and visit architectural sites throughout Europe.

The result of this rigorous education and distinctive experiential learning opportunity: our students learn to consider the culture, history, and community impact of a given structure, and graduate prepared to practice traditional and non-traditional forms of architecture.
