University of Pennsylvania
The University of Pennsylvania School of Design brings together a community of creative individuals who believe that truly effective design lies at the intersection of theory and practice. Through an enduring commitment to collaborative research, PennDesign has forged a position at the cutting edge of thought and action about climate change, performative design, infrastructure, land use policy, and effective use of resources. The breadth of disciplines that make up the School engenders constructive debate that informs a distinctive approach to art, buildings, landscapes, and cities; and the School’s situation in a preeminent university in the City of Philadelphia encourages engagement in the intellectual and civic discourse of today and prepares students to face the challenges—and anticipate the opportunities—of tomorrow.PennDesign confers professional master’s degrees in architecture, city and regional planning, environmental building design, fine arts, historic preservation, landscape architecture, and urban spatial analytics. The Ph.D. is awarded for advanced study in architecture and city and regional planning. The School offers a complement of certificate programs in a broad range of areas including ecological architecture, graphic design, real estate design and development, and urban design. Courses of study are available to undergraduates in fine arts, architecture, and digital media design. The University of Pennsylvania School of Design is home to the T.C. Chan Center for Building Simulation and Energy Studies; PennPraxis, a platform for faculty-student engagement in real-world projects; and the Penn Institute for Urban Research.
