The University of Oregon's Summer Architecture Academy offers prospective architecture, interior architecture, and landscape architecture students a chance to investigate the field of architecture and design in an intensive 4-week experience. Includes workshops, lectures, demonstrations, and field trips.
Professional degree programs in the architectural design professions require a tremendous commitment of time and energy. Summer Architecture Academy offers students a chance to sample a professional program before applying to or entering a professional architecture school. The academy provides an excellent means of acquiring both the basic information and the practical experience needed to make an informed career choice and to begin planning for an architectural design career. Students gain a broad view of the field while developing skills and portfolio materials to bolster an application to a professional school. Past academies included students of all ages: high school students, college undergraduate and graduate students, and people in career transition.
The Summer Architecture Academy is undergoing a redesign for 2019. More details about the program's availability coming soon!
