The School of Architecture + Art fosters a natural and effective mentoring relationship between faculty and students. With typical design studio ratios of 14 students to 1 professor, classes in some ways resemble a large architectural office and encourage the exchange of ideas and intense effort. You will learn design processes to expand your imagination and discover innovative, grounded solutions to real-world problems.
Courses take a balanced approach to the art and science of architecture, embrace environmental sustainability and resiliency, and encourage students to develop their own vision as designers.

The Architect Registration Examination (ARE) is the third component of the “three E’s” required in the path toward professional architectural licensure (i.e., Education, Experience and Examination). Education is met by completing a National Architectural Accrediting Board-accredited professional degree.
The bachelor’s degree in architectural studies is a four-year pre-professional program that prepares students for a one-and-a-half-year master of architecture program (accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board) at Norwich. It is an introduction to the profession, where students learn vital technical, artistic, design, and communication skills.
Norwich students in all disciplines have the opportunity to broaden their college experience by earning a minor degree in art history. An art history minor helps students develop their awareness and knowledge of art as it has played a role in the formation and understanding of human culture.
