Top 10 reasons we're unique...and just right for you. 

The diversity in our studios comes not only from race and ethnicity but also cultures, backgrounds, geographies and much more. Diversity enriches design and broadens our perspectives.

Our People

We are risk takers and problem solvers. Through our interdisciplinary studios, students and faculty from all of our disciplines, Architecture, Interior Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Graphic Design, learn from each other, respecting the diversity of thought and experience. We’re a small community (about 700 students and 72 faculty and staff) within a large, dynamic university. In this setting, we explore through research, collaborate through public service, learn through making and discover through design.

How We’re Doing

Perhaps the best way to measure our success is by the successes of our alumni. Since 2010, 88% of Architect Registration Examination tests taken by our alumni have reached scores at or above the national average, and year after year, our grads outscore those from any other school in the Southeastern Conference. The ARE is the series of tests designers must pass to call themselves “architects.”

We prepare our students to succeed in their careers, and we believe that’s a mark of excellence.  Rankings are another way we measure success.  In 2019, DesignIntelligence ranked all of our schools as “Most Hired From.” 

Also in 2019, DesignIntelligence ranked our undergraduate Architecture program No. 16 among all public schools in the nation, and in 2017, the program was ranked No. 10.
