Academics at CAP

Students in the College of Architecture and Planning (CAP) at the University of Colorado Denver engage directly with our vibrant city, dynamic communities, and magnificent landscapes. 

Students benefit from small class sizes, dedicated faculty and staff, strong student organizations, internships and mentorships with local professionals, abundant opportunities to engage in research and creative activities, and the vitality of LoDo (Lower Downtown Denver) where we reside. Degree programs in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Planning, Urban Design, and Historic Preservation may be combined or customized to form unique plans of study. The college also offers an interdisciplinary PhD Program. View a snapshot of the academic programs offered at CAP.
