Woodbury School of Architecture
Woodbury School of Architecture offers a welcoming environment for students to develop their own unique design voice. We approach the design disciplines multi-dimensionally, teaching a range of pedagogies and design methodologies. Our students leave Woodbury with the confidence to engage in local and global discourse.
Through engaged faculty-student interaction, we transform our students into innovative professionals with a commitment to the power of good design. We introduce students to resourceful, ethical practices through our curricula and in a myriad of ways through our co-curricular activities. Our students and faculty share a commitment to sustainable practices, community outreach and civic engagement.
Our School of Architecture is among the first 14 accredited architectural programs to be accepted for participation in the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) Integrated Path to Architectural Licensure (IPAL) initiative. Successful students will have the opportunity to have an architectural license upon graduation. With the support of our Career and Outreach Office, we have established a consortium of firms in Los Angeles and San Diego who hire qualified students as part of this program.
We believe that our school is a role model for the direction in which the profession is heading – improving gender parity and ethnic diversity among its members, and reaffirming the importance of ethical conduct and social responsibility. Ours is a welcoming community for every race and orientation, and we resist acts of intolerance in favor of thoughtfulness, generosity and kindness. The economic, ethnic, and academic backgrounds of our students reflect Southern California itself. We are determined to provide a place for open debate, the respectful airing of differences, and for rich forms of expression and imagination.
