The undergraduate curriculum in Environmental Design at Texas A&M University is offered through the Department of Architecture. The four year Bachelor of Environmental Design (B.E.D) degree prepares students for challenging careers in industries supporting the built environment. Students who enroll in the Bachelor of Environmental Design engage in a degree program that fosters creativity and problem-solving skills, provides extensive knowledge of architectural history and theory, and cultivates high levels of knowledge and capability in building and design technology. Coursework encourages multidisciplinary and comparative perspectives that allow opportunities for communication and team oriented methods of production. Global perspectives are encouraged by a mandatory semester-long study away experience that includes study abroad or internship opportunities.
Students develop skills and acquire knowledge through a studio-based experience with a variety of proposed or actual design projects. The studio projects place a shared emphasis on the technical and expressive content of design work, the processes by which students research, synthesize and document their design ideas, and the creation of tangible products that achieve a high quality of graphic and physical craft.
