Head of the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture and Associate Professor
The Architecture Program is a five-year program, that leads to an accredited professional Bachelor of Architecture degree. The professional Bachelor of Architecture (B. Arch.) is a fully accredited program by the National Architectural Accrediting Board. The five-year curriculum is structured as two stages of study: Pre-Architecture and Professional studies. Service learning opportunities form an important component in the curriculum. After graduating with this degree and successfully completing a six-month internship, graduates are eligible to begin taking the ARE licensing exams.
Students apply for admission to the Bachelor of Interior Architecture Program during their second year of the Architecture Program. The Interior Architecture Program has a separate admissions process in addition to the same basic admissions requirements as the Architecture Program because students are pursuing both degrees concurrently. At the end of five years and two summers of study, the ARIA student receives a Bachelor of Interior Architecture degree and a Bachelor of Architecture degree. The Interior Architecture (ARIA) curriculum prepares the graduate as a specialist in shaping the exteriors and the interiors of design environments
The Bachelor of Science in Environmental Design is a flexible multi-disciplinary degree. The degree content includes the five core environmental design courses, directed electives, and free electives. Students are encouraged to use the free electives to earn one or two minors. Two summers of coursework are required for the environmental design workshop course series. The degree is a good option for students who are interested in pursuing graduate studies in design, planning, and construction related programs.
Pre-Landscape Architecture track of Environmental Design is preparation for the Master of Landscape Architecture Graduate Program. The Master of Landscape Architecture is a three-year professional program degree. The Auburn University Master of Landscape Architecture prepares students for careers as creative and adaptive landscape architects. All the components of our program are therefore designed to teach and model emerging real world conditions.
The Auburn University Master of Landscape Architecture program prepares students for careers as landscape architects who will imagine, design, and build the 21st century’s landscapes. Landscape architecture both offers the tools to engage many of the most pressing issues the world faces today and works with a medium — the landscape — that is richly expressive and engaging. In our studio-focused curriculum, students explore contemporary issues, directly engage landscapes and communities outside the walls of the university, and learn with a faculty of leading landscape practitioners and researchers.
