Important Information Regarding Architecture Course Applications and Online Registration:

Most architecture courses have limited online enrollment and require an application. Links to all of our spring 2021 applications are provided in the course listings below.

Academic Year 2020-2021 Courses

For the 2020-2021 academic year, in addition to semester-long (14-week) course offerings, the Architecture Department will also offer 7-week “immersive courses.” These courses will cover a semester’s worth of material in a shorter period of time and will meet for twice as many hours per week, allowing more contact between faculty and students and more sustained focus on the class content. They will be offered in either the first half of a semester (e.g., Fall A, Spring A, Summer A) or in the second half of a semester (e.g., Fall B, Spring B, Summer B).
