NYC Empire State BuildingAcross courses, workshops, and experiential learning opportunities, students are immersed in an academic environment that foregrounds architectural practice as a subject of study and a venue for production and experimentation. The faculty are prominent New York City-based academics and professionals and are complemented by international guest speakers and mentors from Syracuse Architecture’s expansive local alumni network.

Professional electives and the architectural design studio are conducted at the University’s Fisher Center in Midtown Manhattan, which is shared with the College of Visual and Performing Arts and the School of Journalism, among other programs. The semester in New York City is organized into two sessions in which students enroll in a total of 12 credits. The first module (weeks 1-12) will focus on studio and one elective course. During this time, students will enroll in 9 credits. The second module (weeks 14-16) will focus on an intensive 3-credit course oriented towards professional development.

Additionally, there are many opportunities to learn outside of class, during the public events series, field trips, office visits and guest workshops throughout the semester. During the summer months the New York City program expands its focus to study the impact of real estate development in architecture and the city and experiential learning opportunities.
