Academic programs in Architecture, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture, and Construction Management are structured into one year of pre-professional coursework and three years of major (professional) coursework. Professional program courses begin in the fall semester of the student’s second academic year.

The SDC reviews admission to the major applications once a year at the end of spring semester. Students must apply for admission to the major and may apply for admission to more than one major if the required qualifications are met.

Admission is competitive. Due to enrollment limits, completion of all pre-professional coursework does not guarantee acceptance into the professional program. However, all students who meet the minimum requirements are encouraged to apply.
