Architecture and the built environment
At SCAD, your architecture degree comes with a robust array of opportunities. You can intern in the thriving marketplace of Atlanta. You can take in the European influence while studying at SCAD Lacoste. You can experience the architecture of the world city during a three-week immersion in Hong Kong.
