The college is committed to excellence and maintaining the Kansas State University traditions of competence, thoroughness, andmastery of knowledge and skills. In addition to studio experiences, courses in history, theory, technology, construction, planning and professional practice provide students with the foundation to successfully enter professional practice.
Students in the college are able to take advantage of the intellectual resources available in related disciplines in our university through opportunities like first-year seminar, minor programs and the honors program. Within the professional curricula, students are afforded opportunities to participate in field trips, study abroad experiences, internships and/or the Kansas City Design Center.
Degree optionsK-States College of Architecture, Planning & Design offers three accredited professional design degree programs:
- Interior architecture & product design
- Landscape architecture
- Regional & community planning
Two options are available during your first year. The studio option leads to a degree in architecture, interior architecture and product design, or landscape architecture. The planning option leads to a degree in regional and community planning. Both options provide an introduction to the design and planning professions.
For most students, the first year is an introduction to a way of seeing and thinking about the environments we occupy. The studio option is more than drawing. The studio introduces the visual and verbal vocabularyemployed in the creation, definition and communication of space.
