University
Setting

In keeping with Bowling Green State University’s vision of becoming a premiere learning community, and the College of Technology, Architecture, and Applied Engineering parallel outlook, the Department of Architecture and Environmental Design takes a quality-driven approach to education and strives to maintain a pedagogical framework that aligns the development of student knowledge and skills with the cultivation of professional values and leadership capacities. The Department recognizes the inherent originality of the discipline’s constituents---including theory, design, technology, communications, and practice---and the synergic benefits thereof to map the professional curriculum. Infusing seamlessly throughout the undergraduate and graduate education continuum, this broad, inquiry-based outlook benefits not only the students, but also the institution, the community, and the profession.

School Philosophy

School
Programs

The BGSU Bachelor of Science in Architecture curriculum is designed to build a cumulative educational experience over four years in order to establish a broad and deep foundation of knowledge in architecture in relation to current developments in the sciences, arts and technology. This curriculum stresses the importance of architecture as a humanistic discipline concerned with the design and construction of habitats in diverse social and ecological conditions, along with the corresponding requirements for sustainability and ethical responsibility.

The BGSU Undergraduate Architecture Major is a pre-professional course of study which focuses on sequences of architectural design studios complemented with history and theory courses as well as courses on structures, materials and building systems. Students will also learn how architecture relates to urban design, interior architecture, sustainability and the environment.

The BGSU Architecture Major represents a comprehensive undergraduate education that is the first step in a series of educational and apprenticeship requirements leading to professional registration as a licensed architect. Those students who wish to pursue a professional career in architecture will be required to obtain a Master of Architecture, either from BGSU (granted candidacy status in 2013, continuing status in 2015 by the National Architectural Accrediting Board with initial accreditation planned in 2017) or from another institution which offers a graduate program in architecture. A degree from BGSU in architecture provides a foundation for the many careers that involve construction of the built environment, such as: interior architecture, historic preservation, construction management, real estate development, urban design, and sustainable development, among others.
