Program Description

The University of Oregon’s Department of Architecture seeks to improve the design of the built world at all scales—from furniture to interiors, buildings, and cities.

We believe that buildings are grounded in places and cultures, and work needs to be relevant to the real needs of clients, communities and the natural world.

Our department is a place of exploration, hard work, mutual respect, self-responsibility and shared respect for quality and beauty.

Master of architecture students complete a professional degree—leading to licensure—in a stimulating environment where learning, research, and design inform each other. Interdisciplinary collaboration is encouraged; new ideas and established traditions are constantly in dialogue.

The program is studio based, with a full complement of professional courses with opportunities to focus in an area of special interest. Students can take advantage of numerous on and off-campus opportunities for expanding their academic experience.

We offer a full array of foreign-study programs, internships in architectural offices, and various opportunities to work directly with communities.

Program Description

The University of Oregon’s PhD program in architecture prepares students for careers at universities, and at other entities engaged in research related to sustainable design such as national research laboratories, industries, public agencies, and non-government organizations.

Students admitted to this program will carry out a program of advanced study and research in sustainable design. Students can take advantage of numerous on and off campus opportunities for expanding their academic experience.

We offer a full array of foreign-study programs, internships in architectural offices, and various opportunities to work directly with communities.

A current architectural license and design practice may be applied in lieu of a professional degree in architecture; however, a master's degree in a related field would still be required in this scenario.
