HOW TO APPLY

The Architecture Program at The University of Texas at Austin values intellectual ambition and cultural relevance in architectural production. Our teaching and research is founded on a shared interest in ambitious buildings. We uphold an integrated, close-knit design studio model encouraging dialogue, collaboration, risk-taking, and innovation.

CRITICAL PRACTICE

Since its founding in 1909, the School of Architecture has been one of the most distinguished schools of architecture in the country. Alumni of the School of Architecture include internationally recognized leaders of Snøhetta Craig Dykers and Elaine Molinar, and David Lake of Lake|Flato. The most recent DesignIntelligence survey ranked the UT School of Architecture as the  #1 "More Hired From" Architecture Program in our size group. In addition to our Career Services Office, the school has a robust Professional Residency Program, through which students can join significant architectural offices around the world. Additionally, Visiting Professorships bring noted architects to teach Advanced Design studios within the school on a regular basis, and a high percentage of our full-time faculty are themselves noted practitioners.
