    USC School of Architecture - Summer  Program

    USC, like many schools of architecture with a five-year professional degree program, requires students to declare architecture as a major upon application, and includes architecture courses in the first year of the college curriculum. This early commitment to architecture can be daunting to freshmen. USC has created a program to inform students and assist them in making academic and career decisions. 

    USC's virtual four-week program (June 14th- July 9th) offers three units of college course credit, providing motivated high school students with a head start on their college education. Our rigorous two-week virtual program (June 14th- June 25th) offers students a glimpse into design thinking and architectural education with a shorter time commitment. Both options provide an invaluable opportunity to meet other inquisitive students while honing design and critical- thinking skills. Students with a wide range of interest find the exposure to architectural design enlightening, stimulating, and fun.

    Four-week courses will run June 14 - July 9, 2021.

    Application information may be found at USC Summer Programs. If further information is needed, please contact the USC School of Architecture.
