  • Los Angeles-Long Beach, CA (1888PressRelease) April 04, 2017 - Woodbury University's School of Architecture will welcome prospective students to its Spring Graduate Open House, which provides an opportunity to learn more about the School's graduate degree programs offered at its Los Angeles campus. Interested students can register here. Save the date: Thursday, April 6, from 6-8 p.m.

    In this informational session, program leaders will present an overview of Woodbury's Master of Architecture, Master of Interior Architecture, and Master of Science in Architecture programs. Guests will have the chance to ask questions of the School's graduate admissions counselor, tour the campus, and meet faculty, administrators, and current graduate students.

    The professional graduate programs embody a fresh approach to architecture, Southern California, and global urban conditions. The faculty is comprised of architects, designers, academics and policy makers practicing in Los Angeles, San Diego, and Tijuana. This award-winning, internationally recognized group works closely with students, imparting the skills needed to push the limits of practice and explore disciplinary possibilities, both theoretical and professional.

    Woodbury's NAAB-accredited Master of Architecture is among the first four graduate programs nationwide to be accepted for participation in the National Council of Architectural Registration Board's (NCARB) Integrated Path to Architectural Licensure (IPAL) initiative. Successful MArch students will have the opportunity to have an architectural license upon graduation. With the support of the Career and Outreach Office, Woodbury has established a consortium of firms in Los Angeles and San Diego who hire qualified students as part of this program.

    Graduate students at Woodbury's Los Angeles campus can take advantage of the School's strategic locations at the heart of the Southern California creative industries - its campuses in Los Angeles and San Diego and an urban field station in Hollywood, WUHO. Faculty and students have drawn inspiration and experience from these sites to form a critical infrastructure for design investigations.

    "Woodbury University is a place of sheer exploration of self and design in the most avant-gardist, indie way. You can sculpt your path and explore your interest with support and minimum restrictions. Woodbury is embedded in the most exciting city for architectural exploration, experimentation, and implementation," said Henry Cheung, MArch alumnus, who graduated in 2013 and now works at Bestor Architecture.
