  • Fallingwater by Frank Lloyd Wright - Mill Run, Pennsylvania

Study Abroad and International Exchange

International study and exchanges are essential to the study of architecture and in the education of the architecture student. It brings to life in real-time the places and cultures that are the foundations of teachings in architecture, its precedents and history. The Department has several agreements with various institutions.

The Department strongly encourages students, beginning in their third year of study to participate in international study and exchanges. Through the on-going European Study-Tour/Charrettes, with such institutions as DIS Copenhagen, Ecole Nationale Superieure D’Architecture et de Paysage de Lille, France, CIEE Barcelona and Spain, students are exposed to the content of culture, architecture, design and technology by working with other students and faculty from worldwide perspectives which further enrich their educational undergraduate experience.

The Department encourages summer travel programs directed by faculty and, in the past years, conducted yearly travel study programs throughout Europe and Scandinavia including such destinations as Lille, Paris, London, Milan, Venice, Rome, Barcelona, Bilbao, Spain, Dessau, Berlin, Maastricht and Amsterdam.

The Department continues a mutually agreed study program between the Caribbean School of Architecture (Kingston, Jamaica). Additional agreements include the Department of Architectural Engineering at Catholic University of Daegu, Republic of Korea as well as ongoing interest in developing dual degree programs in architecture and allied disciplines through CCIEE/CEAIE US Programs and various Chinese Schools of Architecture.
