Design the future
From landscapes to libraries to cities, sets, and stages, we provide the advanced technical skills and foster the deep human sensitivity needed so that you can create spaces, environments, and realities (digital and physical) – simply put, these degrees can help you build a better future.
Penn State provided the specialized training required to succeed in my field in the “real world,” as well as a strong network of alumni to guide me once I got there.
