Preparation for Careers in Architecture

Although Bryn Mawr offers no formal degree in architecture or a set pre-professional path, students who wish to pursue architecture as a career may prepare for graduate study in the United States and abroad through courses offered in the Growth and Structure of Cities Program. Students interested in architecture and urban design should pursue the studio courses (226, 228) in addition to regular introductory courses. They should also select appropriate electives in architectural history and urban design (including courses offered by the departments of Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology, East Asian Studies and History of Art) to gain a broad exposure to architecture over time as well as across cultural traditions. Affiliated courses in physics and calculus meet requirements of graduate programs in architecture; theses may also be planned to incorporate design projects. These students should consult as early as possible with Senior Lecturer Daniela Voith and the program director in the Growth and Structure of Cities Program.
