Inside SCI-Arc


SCI-Arc offers undergraduate, B.Arch, and graduate degree programs, March 1 and March 2 accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

The newly launched EDGE, Center for Advanced Studies in Architecture will offer four postgraduate degree programs in fields including architectural technologies, entertainment and fiction, design of cities, and theory and pedagogy, along with a fellowship in synthetic landscapes.

In addition to its undergraduate and graduate programs, SCI-Arc offers two summer programs: a four-week program for high school students, Design Immersion Days; and a five-week intensive, introductory program that explores design through experimental architecture Making+Meaning.

SCI-Arc’s undergraduate and graduate programs culminate in two public events in which students present their thesis projects to renowned critics from all over the world. A true celebration of academic achievement, the thesis reviews are regarded as a major forum for the discussion of insights and innovative concepts among theoreticians and practicing architects.
