Innovation and Leadership in Architecture
Consistently ranked in the top architecture programs for sustainable design, the Department of Architecture offers fully accredited professional degree programs in 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 Department of Architecture offers graduate programs both in Eugene and at the historic White Stag Block in Portland.
Master of Architecture II and MS in Architecture candidates can initiate and complete required coursework in Portland in order to earn a degree. Master of Architecture I candidates must initiate coursework in Eugene. Once candidates have completed the necessary prerequisites, they are eligible to continue on to Portland to complete degree requirements.
We strive to create inclusive learning environments where 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.
