Field Trips

The Architectural Studies field trip is an opportunity for students to visit sites of national and international significance and to study historic and contemporary architecture first hand in northeastern North America cities.

Fall 2017 Field Trip| October 26-30

The annual Architectural Studies fall field trip will focus on sites around Charlottesville, Virginia, and Washington DC. At the University of Virginia, we will spend time with faculty and admissions staff in the School of Architecture. The precise order of sites visited in Washington will depend on local conditions and is still to be determined. Depending on time and other factors, we may visit the School of Architecture and Planning at the Catholic University of America.
