The making of architecture is a sensible technical and aesthetic activity that serves the needs of human shelter.

Educational Opportunity

The construction of shelter is an imaginative cultural research that enables dwelling as a fundamental human aspiration and means to a graceful life.This pursuit must be inflected by place, the geography of Arizona, and the culture of the Southwest.The design for place must be influenced by a portable global sensibility, yet observant of local traditions, tempered by material circumstances, and expressive of the ethos of time and place.

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”​
