Architecture is a way of seeing, shaping, and making sense of our environment. It is a curiously pragmatic and material practice. It is a longstanding intellectual discipline. It is a legally responsible profession. It is a material mediation of translating productive intellectual action to social effect. Architects use a conventional technology (graphics) to direct specific labor (building arts) to effect a greater socio-public outcome (urbanism). In the Department of Architecture (DoArch) at South Dakota State University the collaborative work of faculty and students highlights the relationship between the Building Arts and Public Works. DoArch was founded in 2010 as the first professional architecture program in the state of South Dakota and the newest architecture program on the Great Plains in a century. The aim of DoArch is threefold: 1. Provide the region with a supply of well-trained professionals, to study and advocate for South Dakota communities, 2. Strengthen the connection between the design and building arts industry, 3. Expand academic discourse to engage small urbanism and the role of architectural education in non-metropolitan areas. In 2015, programs in Interior Design, Landscape Architecture, Graphic Design, Architecture, and Studio Arts were brought together to form a new School of Design (SoD). The following year, DoArch moved into a new building with offices, design studios, and a 13,000sf workshop outfitted with state of the art manual and CNC fabrication, construction, and manufacturing tools. DoArch has a unique mandate to remain a small program of no more than 220 students. The Department offers an accredited Master of Architecture (M-Arch) degree and a pre-professional 4 year Bachelor of Fine Arts in Architecture (BFA-Architecture) degree. Students with a 4 year undergraduate degree in architecture matriculate through the M-Arch degree in 2 years. DoArch also offers a 3 year M-Arch path to students that have completed an undergraduate degree in disciplines other than architecture. Land grant institutions were established to promote “agriculture and the mechanical arts�. Since their founding, institutions such as South Dakota State University have grown to include disciplines that highlight the importance of the humanities within the liberal arts. As part of a land grant institution, DoArch is uniquely positioned to heighten the humanities through the study of diverse cultures and the ethical implications of making spaces, places, and things.

In the United States, most registration boards require a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a prerequisite for licensure. The National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), which is the sole agency authorized to accredit professional degree programs in architecture offered by institutions with U.S. regional accreditation, recognizes three types of degrees: the Bachelor of Architecture, the Master of Architecture, and the Doctor of Architecture. A program may be granted an eight-year, three-year, or two-year term of accreditation, depending on the extent of its conformance with established educational standards. Doctor of Architecture and Master of Architecture degree programs may require a pre-professional undergraduate degree in architecture for admission. However, the pre-professional degree is not, by itself, recognized as an accredited degree. The Department of Architecture at South Dakota State University offers the following NAAB-accredited degree programs: M. Arch. (Pre-professional degree + 48 graduate credits) M. Arch. (Non-preprofessional degree + 97 credits) Next accreditation visit for all programs: 2019

Pragmatism is not necessarily practical, education and practice in small places is pragmatic. Practice is theoretical, the history of the profession frames the emergence of new forms of practice. Building Arts are technological, the distinction between high and low-end technology is irrelevant. Public Works are speculative, spatial provocations rooted in the culture of a place are political.
