The University of Southern California School of Architecture gives students numerous degree options to best pursue their individual interests and goals. All undergraduate students may choose between two distinct bachelor degrees, and a minor from more than 150 options. Their graduate students may choose from our PhD program, five master’s degrees, two dual degrees and four certificate programs.

Through the ongoing success of so many alumni, the School of Architecture has built a well-earned reputation of preparing leaders in our field. Their degree-curriculum — whether in architecture, landscape architecture, building science or heritage conservation — has always been intensive, in-depth and topical, with each program fusing history, theory, technology and design into a variety of degree programs that well-prepare our students for the rigors of the professional design practices.

Their graduates are world renowned as the foremost designers, practitioners and faculty in architecture of yesterday and today. They hold two Pritzker Prize laureates Frank Gehry and Thom Mayne as alumni, as well as Case Study House Program participants, Pierre Koenig, Conrad Buff, Don Hensman and Cal Straub.
