The Architecture major is a pre-professional program leading to a B.A. degree within the four-year curriculum of the College of Arts and Sciences. Its primary goal is to introduce students to architecture as a cultural practice that structures both the physical and social environment. In addition to core courses in architectural history, analysis and design, Architecture majors will be introduced to a wide range of disciplines and creative studio practices that contribute to an architect’s breadth of knowledge and problem-solving skills.
The Architecture major also prepares students for graduate programs in architecture and the allied fields such as landscape architecture, interior design, urban design, urban planning, historic preservation, art and architectural history. Students interested in moving to careers in civil engineering, real estate, or working for international, public, or non-governmental development agencies are encouraged to enroll in the Architecture major in addition to USD's programs in Engineering, Environmental Studies, Business Administration, Sociology, Ethnic Studies or International Relations.
