We are passionate about what we do and what we do is educate architects and designers to create a more sustainable future, provide the much-needed leadership to get us there, advocate for social justice, and celebrate our diversity. We do all of this through the exploration of architecture and urbanism here at College Park, in our nearby nation's capital, Washington, DC, in great post-industrial cities like Baltimore, historic colonial cities like Annapolis, and in numerous communities throughout the state of Maryland. We have strategic partnerships with ISI Florence, where we offer semester abroad programs for undergraduate and graduate students alike. We also conduct short-term summer and winter programs to Scandinavia, Rome, Greece, Turkey, and an ongoing archaeological program in Castellammare di Stabia (ancient Stabaie, near Naples, Italy). We engage students from the minute they enter our programs as undergraduates on meaningful design projects and we work to place our graduates in some of the most prestigious firms in the world. Become part of this amazing team.


We invite you to join us on our journey towards a more sustainable and environmentally balanced world. We challenge you to take up the mantle of leadership. Join us in Maryland’s Architecture Program. We know you will find that our architecture program will open doors for you!
