Architecture unites art and science to create aesthetically pleasing structures that are also economical, functional and safe. From hospitals, libraries and schools, to businesses, hotels and residential homes, architects are responsible for the places in which we live, work, learn, meet, play, shop, govern, eat and worship. Rising populations and increasing emphasis on green buildings and sustainable design, as well as exciting trends such as bio-mimicry and modular design, ensure that architects and construction professionals will be in demand by an industry that is diverse, exciting and fulfilling.
The Architecture program at College of DuPage provides students with the artistic, technical, technological and theoretical expertise necessary for careers and further education in architecture and related fields. Depending on their goals and interests, students can choose between a number of degree and certificate programs that will enable them to pursue careers and upgrade skills in a variety of disciplines. In addition, the program includes pre-architecture programs that offer affordable tracks toward earning advanced degrees from baccalaureate-granting or professional architecture programs.
