In the Global Arts, Planning, Design & Construction Concentration, students learn about architectural theory, design, construction, urban and regional planning. Students also learn transferable skills that can help them with not only their careers, but with student organizations, personal relationships and any dealings with others. Your courses will prepare you to work within the field of architecture.
