Architecture - Graduate GSSP

Graduate students in the Master’s of Architecture program at the University of Idaho prepare to solve the complete problems of the built environment. This is achieved via a curriculum that teaches students about both the specifics of, and the interactions between design process, design media, history, theory, technical systems, social systems and environmental systems.  Much of this occurs in the design studio, which is a unique classroom experience that is focused on learning through creating and involves 15 students (typical) and a professor working closely together in the design studio 9 hours per week.  Accredited by the National Architecture Accrediting Board (NAAB), the architecture program provides the professional training needed to become a licensed architect
