Department of Architecture Graduate Programs

Innovation and Leadership in Architecture and Interior Architecture

Consistently ranked in the top architecture programs for sustainable design, the Department of Architecture offers fully accredited professional degree programs in Architecture and Interior Architecture. Within these programs we focus on designing new and revitalizing existing buildings and spaces in urban, suburban, and rural settings to be uplifting, healthy, and sustainable.

Students have opportunities to choose studios that are relevant to their individual interests and academic needs. Intermediate and advanced students are united into a single learning community where peer teaching among students is encouraged. The Interior Architecture graduate program is located on the University of Oregon campus in Eugene, while Architecture offers graduate programs both in Eugene and at the historic White Stag Block in Portland.

Engaged Faculty

We strive to create inclusive learning environments where architecture and interior architecture students and faculty share a rich and diverse mix of perspectives and abilities. Our faculty have a broad range of backgrounds, scholarly interests, and areas of expertise and fulfill multiple roles as educators, scholars, researchers, and design professionals. They engage in professional practice and service projects, participate in national and international competitions, publish work, and present research at professional meetings. Students have opportunities to engage in faculty-led research as well as independent research.


Awarded annually, graduate fellowships provide opportunities for significant financial support, as well as teaching and professional experience.

Let Us Show You Around
