Department of Architecture

More than 60 years ago, the first classes in architecture were offered at the University of Arkansas in response to the post-World War II building boom. Today, the Fay Jones School of Architecture enjoys a national reputation for producing outstanding designers who are well prepared for professional practice. We emphasize drawing as a tool for seeing, and many of our students excel in hand rendering, something of a lost art in the age of digital design.

I have a strong background in math and science, but I've always been interested in design, and it's always been a part of me that I wanted to explore. I thought with architecture I could use both sides of my brain!
