The School of Architecture, Planning, and Landscape Architecture explores innovative, context-based studio formats through its Study Abroad Program.
 
In 1977, APLA established a nine-week traveling Study Abroad Program, which has most frequently been conducted in Western Europe. As a teaching venue, these travels are intended to challenge our students and faculty to test their ideas and knowledge of architecture, landscape architecture, environmental design, and planning against the realities of varied contexts and, in the process, expand their understanding of the nature of their varied disciplines and their effect on human experience.
 
A new format based on the place-based success of the other off campus programs was implemented in the 2005 Spring semester.  Currently, each Spring the APLA program in Architecture/Interior Architecture has programs at the Istanbul Technical University in Istanbul, Turkey, at the UARC in Rome, Italy, and The Americas Studio with opportunities in North, Central and South America.
 
An important development with the Provost's Office has resulted in a significant reduction in tuition for undergraduate students engaging in study abroad through the Office of International Education.  The student pays a study abroad fee in lieu of tuition, which helps offset the costs of the programs.

The Urban Studio (officially known as the Auburn University Center for Architecture and Urban Studies) was founded in 1991 by Associate Professor Franklin Setzer as a teaching and outreach venue for Auburn's School of Architecture. Birmingham is an excellent laboratory of study for future design professionals, and Alabama's largest metropolitan area is home to many of our professional constituents and alumni.
