Architecture + Urban Planning (Taubman College of)
Architectural education at the University of Michigan prepares students to participate actively in the design of buildings and 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.
A pre-professional program exists for student who enter LSA and then plan to transfer to the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning.
Joint degree programs with LSA provide opportunities for students whose educational goals include :
- an undergraduate degrees in both LSA and Architecture
- an undergraduate degree in LSA and a Masters in Architecture.
The architecture program provides academic advising to current students at the University of Michigan and those enrolled at other colleges wishing to transfer into the undergraduate program.
