The Department of Architecture at UC Berkeley has a strong tradition of fostering independent design thinking and research. Our award-winning faculty offer vigorous undergraduate and graduate educational programs and carry out leading research in constructed and virtual environments, architectural technologies, and architectural humanities. The multidisciplinary interests of our faculty and graduate students form the basis of exciting new research collaborations with a variety of other disciplines, including anthropology, international studies, engineering, new media, and urban studies.
Our undergraduate program, culminating in the Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in architecture, has set the standard for pre-professional architectural education for the past fifty years. We are committed to maintaining this edge, and we are reviewing and redefining what undergraduates will need in the next fifty years. Our graduate programs (the Master of Architecture and the Ph.D. in Architecture) offer professional training as well as depth and breadth within and across specialty areas, preparing our graduate students to become leaders in practice and in research. Simply put, the quality of our faculty, staff, and students help rank the Department of Architecture among the best in the nation.
