A collaboration between RIT’s Golisano Institute for Sustainability and College of Imaging Arts and Sciences, the master of architecture program focuses on the areas of sustainability, urbanism and integrated practice such as energy efficiency.
The program is founded on the principle that architecture programs can no longer afford to teach anything other than sustainable architecture. In addition to courses in industrial ecology, sustainable science and sustainable buildings, traditional courses in design, theory and even history will be taught through the lens of sustainability. Students also will have opportunities to collaborate with research labs and academic programs in pollution prevention, sustainable engineering, urban and community studies and public policy.
The program will launch this fall. Read more.
