Architecture and Environmental Design Curriculum

The BSAED program requires 126 credits for the completion of the program and offers students curriculum options for Architecture, Landscape Architecture and City and Regional Planning. The Program consists of an introductory freshman year in which students focus on General Education Requirements (GER) with 9 credits of in-major introductory coursework. Based on the successful completion of introductory coursework, students proceed to the 2nd - 4th year program and will typically take 12 credits in-major including 6 credit design studio, 3 credits of a technology subject, and 3 credits of a history or theory subject. The second year is focused on basic design skills. The third year exposes all students to projects in Baltimore ranging from urban design to individual buildings. The fourth year allows students to focus on Architecture, Landscape Architecture or City and Regional Planning take either Building Design or participate in interdisciplinary Urban Design Studios.
