Academics at the College of Architecture and Planning

‚ÄčIn the College of Architecture and Planning at the University of Colorado Denver, students engage directly with our vibrant city, dynamic community, and magnificent landscape.

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 including an interdisciplinary PhD Program.
