Shape the world!
The Stuckeman School, which houses undergraduate and graduate programs in architecture, landscape architecture, and graphic design, prepares the designers of tomorrow to shape the world in which we live through thoughtful, collaborative, and forward-thinking design solutions that impact virtually every aspect of our lives.
Each of these programs – including professional and research-focused courses of study – is taught by leaders and designed to produce leaders, and consistently high national rankings and job placement rates attest to the success of our programs and graduates. The Stuckeman School is not just a design school – it’s an incubator of ideas, a place to problem-solve, and the next step in your design education.
