Career Outcomes

Inspired by design that promotes the common good, we prepare students for careers as architects, designers, city planners, and other related professions. Some students launch their careers right out of the program, while others pursue graduate studies at the nation’s top universities.

We used the city as our classroom. Practically every studio project was on a vacant site in the city. Understanding the site is one of the most crucial steps to successful design."
