A foreign study or out-of-culture experience is required in the curriculum. To satisfy this requirement students must remember to enroll in the special zero credit hour course, Arch 4000. As the course description states:
This course normally involves foreign studies, design/build, community service, volunteer activities, or other experiences relevant to Creating-Making may also be included. Students are required to engage cultures other than their own. The foreign study experience requires a commitment of eight (8) weeks during the summer session or equivalent time during a regular semester.
