Ball State’s College of Architecture and Planning boasts some of the best professors in the industry, as well as some of the country’s most advanced high-tech approaches to teaching aspiring architects, landscape architects and urban designers.
No matter what you want to do, Ball State has the resources you need to do it—television studios, computer labs, artist studios, an on-campus arboretum and greenhouse, an almost accoustically perfect music hall, a Digital Simulation Laboratory. And our vibrant campus is convenient and easy to navigate. Our campus and community are big enough that you can lose yourself in all of the opportunities and activities, but small enough you won’t get lost on your way to class.
Students don’t hide in the back of the classroom. They dig in and get their hands dirty working alongside other students, faculty, and community partners. We call the process immersive learning. Whether it’s teleconferencing with a real business or writing and performing your own musical, you’ll get plenty of opportunities to apply what you learn to real projects. Our faculty will encourage you to take intellectual and creative risks. And if questioning and exploring is really your thing, check out our Honors College, where you can really flex your academic muscle in special seminar-style classes.
