School of Architecture

dean's message

Donald F. Gatzke

Welcome to the School of Architecture at the University of Texas at Arlington. The School offers undergraduate and professional education in Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Interior Design. All three programs are professionally accredited and internationally recognized with successful graduates in leadership positions in practice, industry, and academia. We are proud of the sustained record of achievement of our students and faculty.

The study of architecture is a broad continuum, stretching from the fine arts at one extreme, through the humanities and social sciences, and to the physical sciences at the other. Design as a mode of thought and discovery, as well as a professional skill, is at the core of the School's academic philosophy.

The School is a community of scholars that simultaneously promotes personal development and collaborative learning in an environment of intellectual experimentation. Furthermore, the School is ideally situated in the epicenter of a vibrant metropolitan laboratory. Masterworks of design found throughout the region stimulate the imagination and real-life environmental problems challenge the creativity of the committed student.
