Professor Talking with Student


Prepare to thrive in the progressive and rewarding field of architecture with a degree from the University of Idaho architecture program.

We Offer:

What You Learn
Here, you develop a comprehensive understanding of the role of architecture in shaping the built environment and influencing everyday experiences. Through classroom learning, design studios, and hands-on programs, you:

  • Tackle real design problems, especially in the areas of sustainability and community and urban design.
  • Refine your technical design skills including drawing, model-making and digital technologies
  • Develop your design ideas from a strong concept to a buildable proposal, integrating your growing understanding of site, architecture history and theory, construction technologies, structures, and passive and active environmental control systems.
  • Participate in internships and international study programs.
  • Collaborate with other majors in landscape architecture, interior design, virtual technology and design, art and bioregional planning.
  • Engage in leading architectural research.

You also have the chance to explore urban design by spending a year or more at the Urban Design Center (UDC) in Boise. The Integrated Design Laboratory, also in Boise, provides opportunities for research and outreach in daylighting, the design of high-performance buildings, and other sustainable practices.

What’s more, our location in the College of Art and Architecture allows you to develop a solid creative foundation in both art and architecture – something you won’t get from many other architecture programs.
