I appreciate your very pertinent comments. It has long been my feeling that the schools need to re-assess the whole of their architectural curriculas, as well as their whole persepctive-- and to facilitate "comprehensive" arrays of courses, based on student choice. But to make those choices requires an enlightened student in the upper levels-- i.e., allow a form of specialization through course selection when the student has the basics down and understood, and has some idea of where they want their career to go. Sure there will be some bad choices, disappointments, and flat-out errors,but the universities should NOT be part of the problems or inhibiting factors to this. They can facilitate through good counseling efforts and use of practicing professionals outside the faculty. The closest I know of, in part of this, is the cooperative program at the University of Cincinnati, where the students alternate work and school-- unfortunately the school is theory-bound. Incidentally, this program is #1 rated in the "Almanac of Architecture and Design"
