Architecture

Architectural education at the University of Michigan prepares students to participate actively in the design of the physical environment. To effect change, an architect must understand the nature of the human problem in its environmental context, have knowledge of the techniques and technology of building, and possess the intellectual and aesthetic skills necessary for a creative synthesis of that information into meaningful and expressive design solutions.

Courses for non-majors

All students are welcome to take our pre-arch courses: ARCH 201, 202, 211, 212, 218, 313, 323, 357 and 423. Please see below for Area Distribution Credit.
