Master of Architecture
SUSTAINABLE ARCHITECTURE DEGREE OPTIONS
The University of Minnesota School of Architecture is invested in design grounded in critical representation (materials and media literacy, or drawing and making as a way of thinking) and social engagement (ethically motivated work that strives to make the world a better place). These grow from the strong reputation of the school as a place where students learn how to beautifully draw and build, and from the state of Minnesota’s history of social progressiveness and humanitarianism. They reflect both what we have been and what, in 21st century terms, we aspire to be.
