Post-Baccalaureate Bridge Program in Architecture 

STUDIO FIRST is a full-time, five-week summer studio for individuals from a wide range of academic backgrounds, who are considering graduate studies in architecture, urban design, or landscape architecture. No previous design experience is necessary. 


The program provides a post-baccalaureate bridge from an undergraduate degree in any field toward a three-year professional degree program in architecture. Participants gain foundational skills and knowledge and generate portfolio material appropriate for application to a Master of Architecture or related degree program.


Architecture is well-suited to people from diverse disciplines, from visual arts and engineering to geography and the humanities. STUDIO FIRST immerses students in the discipline of architectural design and studio culture and helps them determine whether architecture is the right path to follow.
