South Dakota State University

Department of Architecture

The Department of Architecture (DoArch) offers two degrees; a non-professional Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies and a professional Master of Architecture degree. The department is focused on an interactive, haptic, and performance based curriculum rooted in fundamental issues of professional architecture and design practice. Our professional graduates know how to make buildings; how to make investigative and iterative drawings and models of architecture; and how to make places by building. We are a small architecture program in a place where there's a wonderful culture of small practice requiring a generalist's knowledge of building. We aim our professional education at South Dakota but we know that our students can succeed wherever they practice. DoArch is a small program training design students for professional practice in small firms in small places.
