Environmental Design


The Bachelor of Science in Environmental Design (BSED) program is an undergraduate program in the College of Architecture that gives students who want to make a difference the know-how and ability to work on critical community issues. From revitalizing historic downtowns to imagining new neighborhoods, BSED students learn about problems that are worth solving to make places that matter for people. Read More.

Learn By Doing


Collaborative, community-minded design does not happen solely through lectures, so we often move clases out of Gould Hall and make the community our classroom. Whether we work with non-profits, governments, neighborhood associations, or other community groups, BSED students learn through service in the field to turn ideas into actions for real projects and for everyday people.

Make A Difference


BSED graduates are prepared to step into a master’s program or out into the world, ready to engage. Graduates go on to study city planning, architecture, landscape architecture, construction science or interior design. They work community development, downtown revitalization, historic preservation, real estate development, and more.
