Innovations:
Berkeley's architecture department treasures its reputation as a lively academic community fostering diverse schools of thought. The considerable flexibility of the degree programs and the wide spectrum of faculty research interests bear testament to this tradition. Our faculty members are engaged in robust and long-standing research projects and instruction that spans the undergraduate, professional and research-Based programs.

Wurster Hall, the home of the College of Environmental Design, designed by faculty members Joseph Esherick, Vernon DeMars and Donald Olsen in 1964, has undergone recent upgrades and renovations resulting in new classrooms, expanded studio space, and a redesigned library facility. A 2,800-square-foot wood, metal and plastic shop maintained by professional mechanicians is available to students for construction of class-related and personal projects. Other resources include building science laboratories, an extensive collection of slides and other visual aids, and an archive of primary source material for scholarly research in environmental design.

Department publications include Process, the annual student design review; Concrete, the collection of student writing on environmental design; Analogue, the graduate thesis summary, and refereed journals Places and Traditional Dwellings and Settlements Review.

Graduate students have opportunities for teaching under master teachers in all areas of undergraduate curriculum. Berkeley's broad commitment to teaching opportunities for graduate students provides the further advantage of small discussion sections within large lecture courses.

Notes:
– Federal and university financial figures include both undergrad and grad

– Landscape and Planning degrees are offered in the Department of Landscape Architecture and Department of City and Regional Planning, respectively ("sister" departments in College of Environmental Design). The Master of Urban Design is an interdisciplinary program in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and City Planning.

Innovations:
Within our M.Arch. programs, we offer concentrations in the areas of urban design and urban conservation, each of which have required study- abroad components dealing with urban design, planning and conservation in foreign locales. Summer components for these concentrations involve actual sites in Eastern Europe and Cuba.

Themed studios are offered in the graduate school. These include architecture, cultural interventions, sacred space, as well as urban design and urban conservation.

An innovative ten-day summer design-build program has involved the design and construction of unique structures in British Columbia, California, Peru, Nepal and Ireland over the past seven years.

Innovations:
–Cooperative education: students alternate quarters in school with salaried practice experience.
– eCoop: In first graduate year, two professional practice seminars book-end 6 months of co-op internship, including case study research.
– Foreign and regional study programs.
– Practicum, an experimental design-build outreach clinic.

Notes:
In our cooperative education program, all students move back and forth between school and practice experiences. Because they do not pay tuition during their co-op quarters, the tuition they pay varies from 2 to 4 quarters per year, depending on where they are in the curriculum.

Innovations:
The School of Architecture establishes an exciting and demanding environment for learning in architecture, Based on its long tradition of creative exploration in design and thinking. The stimulating interaction between studios, seminar and lecture courses, and the material practices of shop fabrication and computer simulation, encourages personal and public growth, and the development of a mastery of form and technique joined to a sense of the boundless limits of architectural creation. The place of the School in the Cooper Union, and its relation to the School of Art, the School of Engineering, and the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences fosters a unique interdisciplinary context for the mastery of different arts and sciences that contribute to an architect's knowledge, expertise, and sense of public responsibility. In fostering a context of intellectual rigor, in breadth and in depth, the program gives emphasis to a broad spectrum of cultural concerns, which are of significance in understanding the need for and place of architecture in the contemporary context.
