BROCHURE FOR THE MASTER OF ARCHITECTURE PROGRAM
UNIVERSITY OF UTAH, SALT LAKE CITY.
The architecture profession has assumed leadership in the crisis of our environment. An architect must be educated, not merely trained; have a richness of background upon which to draw; originate projects not merely respond to the whims of others; accept responsibility and make the professional contribution that all of society has a right to expect.
The intent of the Utah program is to expand a studentís perception, first gaining a depth of understanding in another field and then beginning a highly concentrated professional study. The student obtains an undergraduate degree in another field while beginning architectural coursework. Major studies in one of the sciences, technologies, the arts or humanities are all encouraged.
The professional program progresses from the fundamentals of visual awareness, through history, structures, materials, processes, natural and human forces, to the development of a philosophy and approach to design. The interdependence of disciplines in the study of environment is stressed. The single degree offered in Master of Architecture.
