The Department of Architectural Studies embraces the synergy between architecture and interior design. The faculty in both fields conduct systematic inquiry into 1) the design process, 2) its products, and 3) the interaction between people and the built environment. Through teaching and service the faculty use the results to 1) create environments that meet the needs of diverse people, 2) evaluate and explain the effectiveness and utility of design processes and products, and 3) educate future design practitioners. The program is an interdisciplinary combination of architecture, the human sciences and aesthetics. The Department’s mission is to educate future design practitioners, advance research of the built environment, and disseminate knowledge to improve quality of life for people.
