The department (DoArch) provides a fully accredited professional education conceptually defined between two sets of studies–“Building Arts” and “Public Works”. Professionalism is in the overlap of responsibility to build and civic responsibility for the built environment. Teaching and scholarship in DoArch is focused on the studio, the shop, the classroom, and regional communities. The undergraduate degree program begins with a unique design based liberal arts education and segues into an NAAB accredited training in architecture. The core mission of the DoArch is to prepare graduates for a broad range of careers advocating for socially responsible and civic profession; fostering collaboration and innovation in issues facing contemporary design practice; and building an academic dialog on a long-standing discipline rooted in material culture, place-making, and graphical inquiry.
