Secondary students, as well as college students and adults contemplating a career change, can choose from a number of intensive summer courses to explore the architecture, interior design, industrial design, and planning professions. Through hands-on experience in design studios, lectures, projects, and field trips to professional design offices, construction sites, and architectural landmarks, participants receive insight into design school and a career in design. These programs also give attendees the opportunity to begin or add to their portfolio, often a critical component of the application process to professional degree programs. Specifics on eligibility, discipline focus, duration, in-residence, and commuter arrangements, prerequisites, tuition, schedule, college credit availability, and application procedures can be obtained from each program.
