Design and build a tasting room for a winery in the stunning Snake River Valley. Develop architectural visions for urban centers of the Pacific Northwest during field trips to Portland and Seattle. See the world’s cultural wonders and visit major international firms — in China, Rome and England — during our faculty-led study abroad programs. These opportunities are possible with U of I’s architecture program, which delivers a cutting-edge, socially-conscious, and sustainable design education in the fastest growing state in the nation.

Students can pursue their degree at our main campus in Moscow, with the rolling hills of the Palouse as their backdrop. Or they can seek out professional opportunities in an urban setting at our Boise campus, located in the heart of downtown at the Urban Design Center.
