Overview

For over 50 years, Syracuse University Summer College has been giving high school students the opportunity to explore their artistic, intellectual, and professional passions while experiencing college life. Our 40+ programs reflect the richness and diversity of the majors and minors at Syracuse University.

The Summer College 3-credit Architecture program is one of Syracuse University’s most popular summer programs for high school students. Students build their understanding and appreciation of architecture through design problems, drawing and modeling exercises, lectures and tutorials, and class discussions. Living the life of a university architecture student for four weeks can help students decide whether to pursue study in a professional architectural school or in a related field. If they discover they want to pursue architecture as a career, they will have a head start.

The program is taught by Syracuse University School of Architecture faculty and is structured so students can produce the beginnings of an architecture program application portfolio. During the course of the program students will develop spatial and formal design skills, learn drawing techniques, explore cutting-edge software, and conduct hands-on model making. This intense and exciting taste of architectural study also includes filed trips to explore significant buildings, guest lectures by faculty members, discussions with current School of Architecture students, and a workshop for putting together a portfolio. Students frequently present their work for discussion and critiques during the course of the program, including a final design review with a School of Architecture faculty panel, and a closing exhibition for students, faculty, friends and families.

*Students must be 15 years of age by the orientation and move-in date, preferred rising senior status.  All applications are individually evaluated for admittance to this program.
