Comprehensive education in design and planning

The College of Architecture and Planning at the University of Colorado Denver is the only college in Colorado offering comprehensive programs in the design and planning of the built environment, from undergraduate through accredited professional masters degrees to the doctorate. We cover architecture, landscape architecture, urban and regional planning, urban design, and historic preservation. We take full advantage of our status, aligning our programs with our special opportunities in Denver, and with our view of what students in our fields will need to flourish in the next few decades.

In the College of Architecture and Planning, we inspire the next generation of designers and planners to ignite evolution in the city, in their fields, and in their lives.
