Architectural studies promotes innovation in the built environment around us. Students learn the skills and acquire the experiences needed to create innovative buildings and landscapes that inspire people, shape their perception of the world around them and transform communities.
The Kean architecture degree program emphasizes knowledge of humanist values in an age of increasing globalization of the field. Critical thinking, knowledge of architectural history and theory, along with direct observation and analysis of the built environment are its hallmarks.
World-renowned architect and designer Michael Graves helped design the program. His principles are part of the curriculum, which includes a semester in Rome for third-year students.
The professors help us every step of the way from developing our concept to making us think critically about what we are doing and why we are doing it. They are all available to help us with our portfolio, resumes, finding internships, and even if we just need someone to talk to. They all want us to do well.
The Classroom and Beyond
At Kean, we believe learning extends far beyond the walls of our classrooms and labs. That's why we encourage you to get involved in clubs and organizations, study abroad at our campus in China or elsewhere and pursue internships that will advance your career. Find out more.
