Requirements for Admission
The Program in Environmental Design currently offers emphases leading to specialized majors in architecture, landscape architecture, design studies, and planning/urban design within its environmental design degree program. All new students initially enter the program as environmental-design majors. Completion of the 75-credit lower-division core leads to entry into one of four specialized upper-division emphases—architecture, landscape architecture, planning/urban design, and design studies. High school students or prospective transfer students from other universities are encouraged to participate in “Be a CU Student for a Day” or other visitation programs co-sponsored by the program and the CU-Boulder Office of Admissions.
