In collaboration with the Institute for Classical Architecture and Arts (ICAA), the College of Architecture and Planning offers graduate certificate in classical studies.
The Classical Studies Certificate offers a sequence of elective courses founded on the Beaux Arts paradigm. Upon successful completion of this optional sequence, students qualify for a Classical Studies Certificate and may apply for a Certificate of Classical Design from the Institute for Classical Architecture and Arts. Students interested in the classical traditions in architecture, landscape architecture, urbanism, and allied arts graduate with a distinct, highly valued skillset.
Classical Studies will provide students with the intellectual and practical skills necessary to position themselves as discerning practitioners and critical thinkers in a particular sector of architectural practice, as well as within allied fields such as traditional urban design, historic preservation, the building arts, interior, and landscape architecture. The course content will merge theoretical inquiry with skill-based learning to provide a solid foundation for a successful professional career.
