Build Your Dream through Architecture
Our Architecture program teaches you how to bring ideas from conception to completion. You will learn how to integrate user comfort and appearance, the safety and functionality of systems, and the aesthetic aspirations of your clients into the design of a building. Community College of Philadelphia offers the only Architecture program in the region where students learn alongside their counterparts in related fields such as Interior Design, Computer-Assisted Design (CAD), Construction Management and Facility Management. As part of this interdisciplinary community, Architecture students will also benefit from specialized program features: studio design courses every semester, classes in every type of architectural drawing, knowledge of building materials and construction processes, and guidance in professional standards and showcasing abilities.
