Department of Architecture


Return to College of Communication and Fine Arts Return to: College of Communication and Fine Arts

The Department of Architecture consists of the Architecture Program and the Interior Design Program. The mission of the Department of Architecture is to prepare graduates to enter the professional practice of architecture and interior design and to serve the Memphis and Mid-South region through research, engaged scholarship, interdisciplinary collaboration, and creative expression that contributes to sustainable, stable communities and enhances the quality of life for all citizens.

The goals and objectives of the Department are as follows: to provide the highest quality professional education through a well-rounded discovery-based curriculum in both the art and science of design with emphasis on processes, professional standards, and the practical application of design and technology; to provide research opportunities for faculty and students with emphasis on “hands on” multi-disciplinary projects through which students gain valuable professional experience while providing services to the citizens of the region; and to expand opportunities for Architecture and Interior Design students by bringing them together with faculty and students in the City Planning, Real Estate Development, and other programs to address public issues, support stable and sustainable neighborhoods, and develop community visions throughout the region.

Architecture Honors

The Department of Architecture Honors Program provides an opportunity for selected Architecture and Interior Design students to enrich their learning experience through honors courses, independent study, a senior thesis, and extracurricular learning experiences. The Honors Program requires a minimum of 15 semester hours of honors work in courses within the Department of Architecture. Students who complete the appropriate degree program with a 3.25 cumulative grade point average will earn a degree that includes the distinction “Honors in Architecture.” Moreover, the diploma and record at the University of Memphis will reflect this accomplishment. Please contact the Department of Architecture honors coordinator for more detailed information.
