Join our community of architects and designers. The Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts offers a rigorous architecture program within a dynamic, crossdisciplinary campus. You can earn a degree with a more architecture-intensive experience or one with a broader liberal arts base. We also offer minors in architectural history and theory, creative practice for social change, landscape architecture, and urban design. You’ll graduate with the tools to design beautiful, innovative, and sustainable architectural environments, and become a more creative thinker and designer.

THE DESIGN STUDIO

We believe that you learn by doing. Our program provides for hands-on, real-world engagement, both in the St. Louis community and beyond. Students work collaboratively with renowned faculty, exploring a wide array of media and techniques. Your work will engage actual sites and tackle complex social, cultural, and environmental challenges.


CAREERS

Your education here will prepare you for lifelong success in any career you choose. Our graduates have become worldwide leaders in architecture, as well as in sustainability, development, landscape architecture, urban design, furniture design, interior design, and fashion design. They include Fulbright Prize winners, founders of major firms, and artist-urbanists selected for the Venice Biennale.
