Our setting within a small liberal arts university makes the Hammons School of Architecture program unlike any other. With a close-knit community of students, faculty, and alumni coupled with a curriculum that encourages exploration and community outreach, HSA students build a foundation that will support them throughout their careers.
The HSA provides an extremely effective preparation for successful practice and with great efficiency: most students graduate with an M.Arch. in only 5 years, rather than the national average of 6 years.
We emphasize one-to-one instruction from talented and connected professors, in classes and studios with low student-faculty ratios. We support student involvement in music performance, athletics, student government, and other extra-curricular activities.
Exploration of materials and construction is supported by an advanced workshop with both traditional and digital fabrication capabilities, including laser cutting, CNC routing, and 3-D printing.
Celebrated Students, Alumni, and Faculty
The HSA prepares graduates for design excellence and professional leadership. Active and accomplished faculty work directly with students and remain connected with alumni.
