The Department of Architecture, established in 1865, is the oldest architecture department in the United States and is consistently ranked as one of the top programs in the U.S. It is a place where the individual creativity of a student can be cultivated and nurtured in a framework that is humanistically, socially, and environmentally responsible.

The Department offers degree programs in the areas of Architectural Design, Building Technology, Design Technology, History, Theory and Criticism and the Visual Arts. Other opportunities for study within the department are also available through the Aga Khan Program for Islamic Architecture.

Notable strengths of the department that cut across the discipline groups are our devoted teaching, the grounding of architecture in both social and material issues, interdisciplinarity, and the remarkable internationalism of faculty, students, teaching and research.
