Description

Architects are creative problem solvers. The primary responsibility of the architectural profession is the design of meaningful, productive environments for human occupation and use. Architects, therefore, must be able to understand the needs and desires of the people who will inhabit and use their creations and effectively synthesize the complex structural, mechanical, constructional components, and cultural references that influence the design of a building. As designers, they must possess creative and aesthetic skills as well as technical knowledge, collaborative ability, and problem-solving agility.

The architecture program seeks to increase students’ desire to learn and to develop a capacity for design-thinking and sound, critical judgment while simultaneously developing their creative potential. Specifically, the curriculum provides the background and means for the student to:

  1. Analyze and understand society’s needs and desires,
  2. Translate these needs and desires into a physical form and spatial organization,
  3. Contribute creatively to the building construction industry,
  4. Search out new problems and contribute to environmental knowledge through design-research,
  5. Initiate and review developments in technology and society, and
  6. Participate in the community that makes decisions affecting the physical environment.

Architecture is a six-year course of study divided into a pre-professional common first year (d.ONE) and a professional program of study. Students choosing to study architecture first enter the College as majors in pre-architecture. After completing a one-year introductory design curriculum common to all undergraduates in the College of Architecture, students apply for admission into the architecture program’s professional program. The professional program in architecture consists of two components: the three-year bachelor of science in design (BSD-Architecture) and the subsequent two-year master of architecture (M.Arch).

Students in good standing at the completion of the BSD-Architecture are admitted to the M.Arch program without application.

In the United States, most state registration boards require a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a prerequisite for licensure. The National Architectural Accreditation Board (NAAB), which is the sole agency authorized to accredit U.S. professional degree programs in architecture, recognizes three types of degrees: the bachelor of architecture, the master of architecture and the doctor of architecture. A program may be granted up to an 8-year term of accreditation, depending on the extent of its conformance with established educational standards.

Masters degree programs may consist of an undergraduate degree and a professional graduate degree, that, when earned sequentially, constitute an accredited professional education. However, the undergraduate degree is not, by itself, recognized as an accredited degree.

The professional master of architecture degree is fully accredited by the National Architectural Accreditation Board (NAAB). The architecture program at UNL was granted 8-year reaccreditation in July 2015.

In addition to the 58 credit hour, two-year professional M.Arch program, applicants with degrees from other fields may be eligible to enter the three year, 92 credit hour master of architecture program with deficiencies. These deficiencies are evaluated by the program director on an individual basis after admission resulting from a review of the applicant’s transcripts and other pertinent professionally-related materials by the Student Affairs Committee.

For those who would like to pursue scholarship and research in architecture, the architecture program also offers a 36 credit hour, scholarly-nonprofessional master of science in architecture degree for students with a bachelors degree in architecture or a related discipline.

The Master of Architecture Professional Program

General

The professional program in architecture is a six-year course of study that includes a one-year pre-professional segment, a three-year core segment culminating in the award of the bachelor of science in design (BSD) and culminates in the final two-year exploratory segment which results in the receipt of the professional master of architecture degree (M.Arch).

Although the bachelor of science in design degree is an integral part of the five-year professional program in architecture, it should be clearly understood that the undergraduate BSD is not a professional degree and is not separately accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board. Most state registration boards will not acknowledge any degree unless accompanied by an accredited professional degree.

The accredited, first professional degree awarded by the College of Architecture is the master of architecture degree which is awarded at the successful conclusion of the professional program in architecture. This is the only accredited professional architecture program in the state of Nebraska.

Upon successful completion of the one-year pre-architecture program, students who have been admitted to the second year may enroll in the curriculum that leads to the BSD degree and the M.Arch degree.

The professional program in architecture is structured to develop highly competent professional architects capable of performing effectively in an evolving discipline.

d.ONE: The Common First Year

d.ONE, the common first year, engages and prepares students for exciting futures in all design fields within the College of Architecture.

The d.ONE curriculum offered by the College of Architecture, introduces students to design through courses in three areas: Technique (drawing and computer applications), Design Discipline (an introduction to the related design disciplines and design history), and Design Practice (design Thinking and design Making). In addition, students take University courses in math (calculus), English, communications, and a general education elective. Design Thinking and design Making are sequential hands-on courses in which students learn to work in teams to address problems and promote innovation. At the same time, they learn the foundational skills in composition, craft, presentation, and idea generation necessary for all design fields.

At the end of the d.ONE common first year, students have gained an understanding of the broad range of design and are eligible to apply to any of the design programs in the College—architecture, landscape architecture, interior design, and industrial design (pending program approval).

Admission

Admission to the Architecture Program

After completion of the first year of pre-architecture studies, either within the College of Architecture or at another institution, students may apply for admission to the professional architecture program.

Pre-architecture students should apply for admission to the professional program in architecture. Successful applicants will have their major changed from pre-architecture to BSD-Architecture option.

Available teaching resources and space capacities limit enrollment to the second year of architectural studies; therefore enrollment limits are established each semester.

Required courses must be completed before advancing to the next year of study.

Minimum Entrance Requirements

To be considered for admission to the architecture program, applicants must:

  • Be enrolled in the College of Architecture
  • Be in good scholastic standing
  • Have completed the one year pre-architecture program of study.

Second Year Admission Process

  1. An application for admission may be completed by filling out the online application. The program receives applications once a year on March 1.
  2. Applicants must submit a portfolio conforming to the defined criteria for the program applied for by the date posted at the completion of the spring semester.
  3. Any applicant who has previously applied for admission and has not been accepted or who fails to enroll in the professional program in architecture after an acceptance must reapply in the regular manner. Students may apply for admission to the architecture program only three times.

Evaluation

The Student Affairs Committee of the Architecture Program will carefully evaluate all applications for admission. The committee considers three elements in their evaluation; cumulative grade point average, a weighted grade point average, and the portfolio of student work. The weighted grade point average gives additional value to the applicant’s achievement in the required DSGN prefix course or transfer equivalents in the pre-professional curriculum.

Selection

Admission to the architecture program will be awarded to applicants who show the greatest professional potential and have demonstrated scholastic achievement. The Student Affairs Committee reserves the right to not fill all available spaces in the professional program in architecture if it determines that the remaining applicants have not performed at an acceptable level.

Admission to the 2-Year Master of Architecture Program

Students having completed the BSD-Architecture may continue their studies culminating in the M.Arch without re-application provided they exhibit a cumulative grade point average of B (3.0) and a studio GPA of B (3.0). Students must submit an intent form with a brief statement of purpose. A portfolio is not required. Students wishing to be eligible for fellowships and assistantships must submit the form by February 1. Fellowships and assistantships have separate applications.

Students from outside the program must apply to gain admission to the 2-year M.Arch degree program. Applications are available in October from the department office and are reviewed once a year in February. The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is not required.

All applications for admission are subject to approval of the Student Affairs Committee. Enrollment shall be limited by the teaching resources and space capacities of the department. An enrollment quota is established prior to each admissions cycle.

Students in the professional program are governed by the rules, procedures and policies established in the architecture program. These are published in the Student Guide or by official notification by the faculty.

Minimum Entrance Requirements

To be considered for admission to the 2-year professional program in architecture, applicants must:

  • Have a 4-year degree from an accreditation-leading architecture program
  • Present a portfolio of design work
  • Be in good scholastic standing
  • Have a B average or its equivalent in past academic programs.

The Student Affairs Committee of the architecture program requires a minimum TOEFL score of 550 or 213 computer-based or Internet-based score of 79-80 for all international student applicants whose first language is not English.

Evaluation

A portfolio of an applicant’s recent design work will be evaluated by the Student Affairs Committee of the architecture program and is considered to be a very important part of the application review process, along with the applicant’s educational profile, letters of recommendation, transcripts, and application form.

Selection

The limited number of spaces available each semester will be awarded to applicants who have displayed the highest abilities in a combination of scholastic achievement, design capability, and professional potential. Strong applicants with significant deficiencies may be admitted to the 3-year M.Arch program.

The admissions committee reserves the right to reject applicants who, in its opinion, have not reached an acceptable level of design proficiency.

Joint Degree Programs

Business

Architecture majors accepted to the 2-year master of architecture may choose to pursue a three-year course of study that leads to joint degrees of master of architecture and master of business administration. Participation in this joint degree program requires admission into both the M.Arch and MBA programs. Students should consult with their advisor to develop an appropriate plan.

Community and Regional Planning

Architecture majors accepted to the 2-year master of architecture may choose to pursue a course of study that leads to joint degrees of master of architecture and master of community and regional planning. This degree would require three years to complete. A suggested sequence of courses can be obtained from your advisor, the Architecture Program Director, or the Community and Regional Planning Program Director.

Admission to the 3-Year Master of Architecture Program

Minimum Entrance Requirements

To be considered for admission to the 3-year M.Arch program, applicants must:

  • Have a four-year bachelor degree in any field
  • Have a B (3.0) cumulative grade point average in past academic programs
  • Have completed one semester (3 cr) college calculus
  • Have completed one semester (3 cr) college physics

Experience in art or design is recommended but not required for admission.

The Student Affairs Committee requires a minimum TOEFL score of 550 or 213 computer-based or Internet-based score of 79-80 for all international student applicants whose first language is not English.

Evaluation

The Student Affairs Committee evaluates the candidate’s past academic record, three letters of recommendation, a statement of educational goals and the information requested on the application form. A portfolio is not required for candidates applying for the three year masters degree program, however, providing evidence of past achievements and/or creative activity is helpful to the committee in its evaluation.

Selection

The limited number of spaces available each semester will be awarded to applicants who have displayed the highest abilities in a combination of scholastic achievement and professional potential.

Deficiencies

The Student Affairs Committee and/or the program chair reserve the right to require additional course work be done to correct perceived deficiencies in the candidates educational background. Examples of common deficiencies include college calculus, basic design, and computer applications. Courses fulfilling these requirements are available at the University of Nebraska and may be taken in the summer preceding the first year of the program.

Advanced Standing

Advanced standing may be granted to exceptional individiuals with bachelors degrees in related fields. Advanced standing would allow students to waive one design research studio. To be eligible for advanced standing, applicants must submit a portfolio for review.

College Requirements

College Admission

Admission to the College of Architecture

Admission to the University of Nebraska–Lincoln does not constitute admission to the College of Architecture. Students seeking enrollment in the College of Architecture should indicate their desire by marking the proper major code on the University application form.

Freshmen and transfer students applying for admission to the pre-architecture, pre-interior design, and pre-landscape architecture program must submit complete admission application materials by May 1 for fall admission and December 1 for spring admission. These admission procedures apply to high school students seeking admission, as well as transfer students, international students, and also those transferring from UNO and UNK to UNL.

High School Standards Pre-Architecture, Pre-Interior Design, and Pre-Landscape Architecture Programs

Prospective students interested in the professional programs in the College of Architecture are eligible to apply for admission into the pre-architecture, pre-interior design, and pre-landscape architecture majors if their high school records meet the following standards:

Former students who withdraw after being admitted to the College, or who have been academically suspended and wish to be readmitted must: a) be readmitted to the College in good scholastic standing, and b) be in good scholastic standing in accordance with the program standards and receive permission from the program director. Applicants for readmission will compete for spaces available with all other admission applicants.

College Degree Requirements

Minimum Hours Required for Graduation

BSD in Architecture – 120 hours
BSD in Interior Design – 120 hours
Bachelor of Landscape Architecture (BLA) – 120 hours

Grading Appeals

A student wishing to appeal a grade should contact his or her professor for clarification first before an appeal can be filed. If the dispute cannot be resolved with the instructor it is recommended that the student meet with their advisor to get clarification on the appeals process. Appeals are only considered where it can be demonstrated that prejudice or capricious treatment influenced the grade received by the student.

Having exhausted these avenues, a student may then choose to make a formal appeal. The appeal is in the form of a written statement from the student to the program director. The director will then forward the letter to the Faculty Affairs Committee. The deadline for filing a grade appeal (which includes a written statement from the student) is 30 calendar days after the first day of classes of the next regular semester (fall or spring). Appeals filed after the deadline will not be heard.

Incomplete Grades

Incompletes for students in the pre-professional program shall be granted only for reasons outlined in the policy statement adopted by the University Senate. See the Office of the University Registrar's website for the complete text.

Incompletes given to students in the professional programs are granted at the discretion of the faculty awarding the grade. The faculty and student together must file an incomplete form in the Student Success office to register the anticipated completion date and the grade that will be registered if the work is not completed by that time.

Students will be allowed a maximum of two weeks to remove incompletes from courses that are prerequisites to classes in which they are currently enrolled or they will be administratively dropped from those courses.

Scholastic Standing

The following scholastic standards have been established to maintain the level of quality for students enrolled in the architecture program:

Pre-Professional Program, Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Interior Design

Students in the first year are required to maintain both a semester and cumulative grade point average at or above 2.0. The College places students who fail to meet these standards on academic probation.

Second, Third and Fourth Year, Architecture

Students in the second year are required to maintain both a semester and cumulative grade point average of 2.6. Students in the third and fourth year of the BSD program are required to meet two parallel academic standards. First the student must maintain a semester grade point average of 2.6 to remain in good academic standing. The program places students who fail to meet this standard on academic probation. Further, students whose GPA for the academic year is between 2.6 and 3.0 are required to submit their studio work for review by the Student Affairs Committee for determination of continuance in the program or repetition of the year’s studio sequence.

Second, Third and Fourth Year, Interior Design and Landscape Architecture

Students in the second year are required to maintain both a semester and cumulative grade point average of 2.6. Students in the third and fourth year of the BSD program are required to maintain a 2.6 cumulative grade point average to remain in good academic standing. The program also requires that students earn a grade of a C or higher in all required courses. The program places students who fail to meet this standard on academic probation.

Master of Architecture

Students in the M.Arch program are required to maintain a semester grade point average of 3.0 to remain in good academic standing. The program places students who fail to meet this standard on academic probation.

Grade Rules

Students must earn at least a C (2.0) in all courses with an ARCH, DSGN, IDES, or LARC prefix to earn credit toward their degree. Students will be required to retake all core required courses with a grade of C- or below, but will not be required to repeat courses that were taken as electives.

Removal of Grades C- or Below

A student receiving a grade of C- or below for an overall course grade may remove that grade by retaking the same course again and receiving a higher grade at UNL, UNO, or UNK. The higher grade will be used to compute the student’s cumulative grade point average, but all grades appear on the student’s transcript.  Students who choose to retake a course at an institution outside of the University of Nebraska system may count the course toward their degree requirement, but the grade will not replace the UNL grade from the student's transcript.

The Pass/No Pass option cannot be used to remove these grades from the grade point average. Please be advised that once a course is no longer taught and no longer offered by the department it is not possible to remove a grade of C- or below through substitution or any other means.

Should you perform poorly in many courses during a semester it is possible to bankrupt the entire semester’s grades. This is a drastic action and should be pursued only after a visit with your advisor.

Pass/No Pass Limits

None of the required classes offered in the professional program are offered Pass/No Pass, but a maximum of 12 Pass/No Pass credit hours of humanities, social sciences, or open electives may be taken from departments outside the College of Architecture. ACE courses specified by the College of Architecture may not be taken Pass/No Pass.

Courses taken outside the architecture, landscape architecture, or interior design programs to fulfill the upper level outside elective requirement at the 800 level or 900 level, with or without a 400-level counterpart, in a minor, collateral, or supporting area of work, can be taken on a Pass/No Pass basis.

Transfer Credit Rules

All professional credit earned at another university to be applied toward the master of architecture degree must be approved by the Professional Program Committee in cooperation with the program director. At least 50 percent of the required course work for the professional degree must be completed at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln with the exception of those students who are applying to enter the program with a four year degree from an accredited architecture program. No professional transfer credit will be accepted from a non-accredited architecture program.

College Evaluation of Transfer Credit

First time students transferring to the College of Architecture from a similar accredited professional degree program will be evaluated on the basis of the current undergraduate catalog in effect at the time the student enrolls in the College of Architecture.

Process

The program director will select and identify those courses that are applicable to the professional program in architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture programs. The College of Architecture will not accept courses for transfer which are below a 2.0 on a 4-point scale.

Evaluation of Technical and Nonaccredited Transfer Credits

Students who desire to transfer credits from technical or nonaccredited colleges must have architecture credits evaluated by the director and/or appropriate program representatives. Non-architecture credits will be evaluated by the appropriate university department.

Evaluation of Graphics, Design, and Production Drawing Credit

Transfer credit for graphics, basic and architectural, landscape architecture, and/or interior design work and production drawings will not be granted until the student’s work has been reviewed by the architecture, landscape architecture, or interior design program director. Allowable transfer credit in the design, production drawings, and graphics areas, whether the grades presented are C, B, or A, will be determined from this review and the student placed accordingly.

Confirmation procedure:
  1. It is the student’s responsibility to initiate this task,
  2. The student procedure is to obtain the confirmation form from the program office and to seek review of appropriate materials, and
  3. A “portfolio review” will determine confirmation of credit. This review will be done by the appropriate faculty member or committee.
Evaluation of General Education Credits

Transfer students who have formally applied for admission will have their academic credits evaluated by the Office of the University Registrar and the College of Architecture. The College will evaluate all hours submitted on an admission application but reserves the right to reject any of these credits.

Clarification and Appeal

The student who has questions about or wishes to appeal the initial College evaluation of his or her transfer credit should contact the program office. If the evaluation is not satisfactorily resolved, the student has the right to register an appeal with the Student Affairs Committee of the architecture, landscape architecture, or interior design programs.

Other College Degree Requirements

Off-Campus Programs

The College of Architecture recognizes the need for some students to pursue their pre-architecture, pre-landscape architecture, and pre-interior design studies at other institutions. One semester (15 credit hours) of off-campus study should cause minimal delay in students’ educational timetables if courses can be selected from the following list and are approved by the College of Architecture. Students are encouraged to coordinate their off-campus pre-architecture, pre-landscape architecture, and pre-interior design programs with the College of Architecture.

Recommended Courses

Calculus (3 hrs)
English Composition elective (3 hrs)
Humanities and Social Sciences electives (9 hrs) See UNL ACE requirements.
Calculus based Physics (4 hrs) for pre-architecture or Natural Science (4 hrs) for pre-interior design or Introduction to Horticulture (3 hrs) for pre-landscape architecture
Speech (3 hrs)

ACE Requirements

Achievement-Centered Education (ACE)

The University of Nebraska–Lincoln requires all students receive a broad general education as part of their academic experience. This requirement translates into the obligation of all students to fulfill the requirements of the ACE program

English

It is of vital importance that architects, landscape architects, and interior designers be able to express themselves clearly and concisely. As a matter of routine, architects, interior designers, and landscape architects are called upon to prepare reports, papers, or specifications in which clarity and precision are essential. For this reason, a student is required to do more than meet the English composition course requirement. In daily oral and written work the student must demonstrate an acceptable skill in the use of effective English. The dean may require students who fail to meet acceptable standards to do additional work in English composition or speech communication. Each instructor is expected to bring to the dean’s attention the students who need additional work.

Students are expected to take ENGL 150 Writing and Inquiry or ENGL 151 Writing and Argument and COMM 286 Business and Professional Communication.

ENGL 186 ESL/Academic Language Skills, ENGL 187 ESL/Introduction to Academic Writing and ENGL 140 Advanced Academic Writing and Usage may not be used to satisfy the freshman English composition requirement.

Mathematics

All students in the College of Architecture are required to receive credit for MATH 104 Applied Calculus. Courses taken as deficiencies to qualify for MATH 104 will not apply as credit toward their degree.

Learning Outcomes

Majors in architecture will be able to:

  1. Apply design-specific modes of thought and methods of inquiry.
  2. Communicate and think diagrammatically through sketches, geometry, and models.
  3. Resolve individual creativity with the needs of clients and society.
  4. Integrate knowledge from different perspectives and disciplines into the design process.
  5. Consider the larger ethical, moral, and environmental implications of individual design actions.
  6. Comprehend the effectual and technical aspects of architectural design.
  7. Resolve multiple and often conflicting project variables into an integrated design.
  8. Re-assess old prototypes and generate innovative architectural designs.
  9. Engage in the production of new architectural knowledge and design research.
  10. Raise clear and precise questions and design statements relevant to future practice.
  11. Practice effectively as interns and continue towards professional M.Arch degree and licensure.

Major Requirements

Pre-Architecture Curriculum

The pre-architecture curriculum begins with d.ONE, a basic design first year common to all undergraduate majors in the College of Architecture. This common first year introduces students to the fundamentals of Design Thinking (DSGN 110) and Design Making (DSGN 111). The pre-architecture program is followed by three years of architectural instruction leading to a bachelor of science in design. After receipt of the bachelors degree, students may declare intentions to continue for an additional two years of study, leading to a professional master of architecture degree. The professional master of architecture degree is accredited by the National Architectural Accreditation Board (NAAB).

The College of Architecture, and all six years of the architecture program, are located at UNL.
