Bachelor of Architecture
The mission of the Drexel Architecture Program is to pursue architecture as a professional discipline by combining the rigors of the academy with the realities of contemporary architectural practice. The program does this by providing a strong, broadly based curriculum in the arts, humanities, social sciences and the applied sciences coupled with professional courses taught by faculty who reflect the broad diversity of architectural practice today.
Drexel’s work/study program is an experiential-based learning model that complements and provides an alternative to traditional studio-based programs. The Drexel model provides a practical, high-quality education to those students who seek early exposure to daily architectural practice as well as an affordable alternative to students who could not otherwise be able to enter the profession.
ABOUT THE SCHOOL
Drexel’s foundation as an innovating institution has established the university as a national leader in higher education. In 1983, Drexel became the nation’s first university to require all undergraduates to have personal access to a microcomputer for use in all of their coursework. The university continued its commitment to integrating technology when it became the first university to operate a fully wireless campus in 2000. In 2006, Drexel became the first major research university to open a new law school in 25 years and is one of only two universities operating law schools that follow a co-operative model of learning.
