Each undergraduate curriculum offers a combination of academic rigor, practical skills development, industry connections, and creative exploration. Experiential learning is integrated into the curriculum, such as co-op, study abroad experiences, and community engagement projects. These experiences will allow students to apply their knowledge in real-world settings, gain practical skills, and develop a global perspective. Together, each program aims to prepare students for successful careers in their chosen fields by providing them with a strong foundation and a holistic learning experience.

DAAP has strong ties with industry professionals, design firms, and organizations, providing students with networking opportunities and potential job placements. These connections can help students establish a professional network while gaining valuable industry experience. This, coupled with the strong emphasis on building a professional portfolio throughout each program, willl showcase student skills, creativity, and ability to solve design and arts-related problems, which are crucial for job applications and graduate school admissions.

No matter which of our undergraduate programs you’re interested in, DAAP will provide you a unique educational experience. And as you continue to explore your options here at DAAP, just remember, some of our most successful undergraduates arrived with creative and innovative minds that were not directly related with the fields of design, architecture, art, or planning.
