Auburn University is located in east central Alabama (100 miles southeast of Birmingham, 110 miles southwest of Atlanta, GA), in the city of Auburn. The School of Architecture is in the College of Architecture, Design and Construction together with the Department of Industrial Design, and the McWhorter School of Building Science. Established in 1907, the School of Architecture at Auburn is one of the oldest programs in architecture in the country and the oldest in the South.
The School of Architecture has a unique and valued set of educational intentions and opportunities made possible by the relationship of architecture, landscape architecture, interior architecture, and community planning within one school.This coalition exemplifies interdisciplinary collaboration as a model of professional activity; insures that students have an overview of the various components in the design and building process; and promotes the connection betweenlandscape architecture, interior architecture and architecture as a single artifact. This forum for exchange of ideas is exciting and challenging and forms the basis for our framework of primary educational priorities, the most fundamentalof which is our focus on the simple and basic issues of building. The design studio forms the integrating venue of this framework, creating an environment for intense collaboration between students and faculty working to fosterunderstanding and mastery of the issues and abilities necessary for shaping the built environment. The School of Architecture is also committed to cultivating an ethic of civic engagement and service in all graduates of our professional programs.This commitment is made manifest via a broad spectrum of community outreach and service learning opportunities in all programs
The Bachelor of Architecture degree program (B.Arch) is a five-year, NAAB-accredited professional degree aimed at preparing students for entry into the practice of architecture. The curriculum of the B.Arch program is organized around a core ofdesign studios, supported by lecture courses and seminars in history, theory, and technical subjects specific to the discipline. Design studios, which begin in the first year of the program (or in the first summer) act as the organizing/integrating venue of this framework, creating an environment for intense collaboration between faculty and students working to foster understanding and mastery of the issues and abilities necessary for shaping the built environment. The Architecture program atAuburn has a strong tradition of excellence in architectural education, and is committed to providing both a focused and comprehensive professional education in architectural design, and to providing a broad exposure to the career possibilities available within a rapidly changing practice context. Central to this goal is our commitment to providing our students with a learning experience rich in exposure to digital technology.Students have access to several computer labs equipped with high-end equipment, as well as digital media integrated into the studio environment.
