Innovations:
The Hampton University Department of Architecture is an accredited Architecture Program, geared toward those who desire preparation to engage in a critical practice of architecture. We believe that architectural education offers unique possibilities, which allow our students to face and lead the broad challenges confronting societies, from the level of individuals, to neighborhoods, and to nations. We are dedicated to promoting a global environment sensitivity, and developing an ability in students to bring about important social and environmental change, especially in transitional urban areas and communities of color. The Department sets the framework for the investigation of architecture as a way of thinking about this world.

Innovations:
We are the only school offering the Arch D. The benefits are that:

Our program focuses on the Asia Pacific region, which is also the mission of the University of Hawai'I. In addition to the resources and people networking of the School of Architecture, you would have other units such as the Asia Studies, philosophy, and Asian Language departments to enrich your studies with knowledge of cultures of the region. Not many schools of architecture have this focus.

Inserted within the program is the Practicum Studio, which places you in a leading firm in the US and Asia Pacific areas that has expertise in Asia Pacific architecture concerns. The Practicum Studio is a two-semester sequence. You would be placed at a different firm each semester. This means you can experience the culture and practice of two different firms as a student while you are in school. It also means you have the potential to include your IDP training time within the Practicum Studio since the requirements for the studio are aligned with IDP requirements. Ultimately, you could qualify to take the licensing exam in the same time as if you had completed an M.Arch. degree program.

Perhaps the most valuable part of our program is the focus on leadership and integration of practice with academics. The Practicum is not the typical internship. You would be mentored by a CEO or senior partner of the firm. In addition to working on projects, you would have the opportuniy to attend meetings, sie visits, and other events that many interns or even middle management architects do not get to experience until they have risen to higher levels in the firm. The mentors are appointed as Practicum Faculty of the University of Hawai'I School of Architecture; therefore, their obligation is to be teacher, not employer.

KPF in New York, Gensler in San Francisco, Stubbins in Boston, The Leonard Parker Associates in Minneapolis, and many others have mentored student participants of this program. No other program gives students such a rich two-semester experience.

Innovations:
The Idaho Urban Research & Design Center (IURDC), located in Boise, ID, provides opportunities for students to gain educational and professional experience in urban and architectural projects. The architecture department also takes an aggressive approach to the use of computer technology in ways that impact both curricular content and delivery. Tools ranging from 3D modeling to Virtual Reality (VR) provide the catalyst for changes in teaching and learning.

Innovations:
Curriculum draws strength from its Mies van der Rohe heritage, its keys position in the trajectory of Modernism, and its connections to emerging architectural practices throughout the world. IIT's historic campus includes dynamic new buildings by Rem Koolhaas and Helmut Jahn, continuing the university's legacy of significant architecture begun by Mies' "campus of the 20th century" and his 19 buildings here. IIT's unique "IPRO" curriculum uses collaborative interprofessional projects to connect various disciplines through applied research utilizing advanced technologies and methods. Directed by practicing architects, studios emphasize innovative design, materials, and construction technology. All courses stress visual training, aesthetics, craftsmanship, and spatial modeling, while incorporating the "Materials and Methods of Construction" instruction into the studio curriculum. Chicago's architecture provides a context for the study of high-rise structures, building types, energy-conscious design, urban planning, and the integration of advanced computer technology with the design and construction process.

Note: Grad tuition based on 15-credit semesters, $610 per credit.
