The School of Architecture strives to prepare our students to be leaders in developing buildings that are appropriate to their culture, climate and context and will stand the test of time. The curriculum is comprehensive, timeless and rooted in tradition. 

All Notre Dame architecture students begin their experience by mastering the art of drawing by hand and the use of watercolors, while recognizing that technology offers invaluable digital tools to designers who have mastered foundational skills. The School focuses on urbanism and stewardship, placing priority on the built environment above the designer.

For over 120 years, the architecture program at Notre Dame has been a leader in the profession, with faculty, students, and alumni working to improve the world around us.

  • Enabling us to engage the next generation of architectural leaders
  • Providing innovative and unique learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students
