Summer Programs

Every summer the Architecture Department offers two summer programs led by KU faculty. These programs are generally two to ten weeks in duration and offer a unique but limited set of KU courses. These programs provide an opportunity for students and faculty to travel together exploring common interests.

To be eligible to apply for these semester or academic year programs a student must maintain an acceptable GPA over the period preceding the application. As a general policy a 3.25 GPA (average of cum and studio GPA) is recommended. Criteria for selection includes: an evaluation of the academic record, including design studio, verbal and written communication ability, and extracurricular activities.
