SUSTAINABLE ARCHITECTURE DEGREE OPTIONS
Since its inception, the New Jersey School of Architecture has continuously expanded its academic, research, and technical strengths. In addition to the initial accredited Bachelor of Architecture program, the School initiated other undergraduate and graduate programs to provide a variety of educational opportunities, including the Master of Architecture (NAAB accredited) and Master of Science in Architecture in 1984, the Master of Infrastructure Planning in 1996 and the Doctorate in Urban Systems in 2001.
With the inception of the School of Art and Design (A+D) in 2008, the NJSOA became part of a larger entity: the College of Architecture and Design. Led by the vision of Dean Gauchat, and under the guidance of its founding Director, Glenn Goldman, A+D further diversified design education at NJIT through the introduction of degree programs in Industrial Design, Interior Design, Digital Design and Fine Arts. Darius Sollohub was named Director of the NJSOA in 2010.
