About the School of Architecture and Interior Design

The core mission of the Architecture Program at the School of Architecture and Interior Design is to prepare students for critical engagement with practice. The program promotes leadership, collaboration, intellectual depth, flexibility, and teamwork. The foundation of architecture education at UC remains a liberal arts education, which provides a broad basis for understanding the role of architecture within a cultural and historical context; and a professional curriculum that is enriched with elective seminars, lectures and design studios that provide opportunities to engage in travel/study programs, experimental projects, and service-learning.  Students alternate these more traditional academic experiences with periods of professional experience through our landmark cooperative education program (co-op).


The School of Architecture and Interior Design (SAID) confers an accredited first professional graduate degree in Architecture (M Arch), an accredited professional degree in Interior Design (BSID), an undergraduate degree in Architecture (BS Arch), a post-professional degree (MS Arch) and Ph.D. degree in Architecture. There are approximately 700 students in the School and 25 full-time faculty. SAID’s top-ranked professional degree programs, as well as the BS Arch degree program, include a renowned cooperative education program (Co-op) that places students in professional work environments as part of the curriculum. SAID’s Co-op network includes over 500 firms across the globe.
