In Reply to: Curriculum for an undergraduate architect posted by Chris on March 04, 2004 at 11:28:30:
It's true, I feel that the curriculum in Minneapolis is more than I could ask for. I understand the importance of the teaching methods used and how much they will be of use later on as an architect. However, a second question rises from this.
I am soon planning to attend graduate school, but in Milwaukee. A few of the responses to this posting said that their education was more about building walls than thinking about them and their composition. This is how Milwaukee's curriculum is structured.
My question is, is there any advantage or disadvantage to switching schools? That is attending a more theory based school for the four years of undergraduate study and then a more "how to build a wall" based school for graduate study?
I believe that a basis in theory would be extremely helpful during graduate school because as I search for jobs, I'll have both theory and experience with the loads of construction documents used in the real world.
