College of Design, Portland program


Portland is recognized internationally for its achievements in urban design, public transit and regional planning. As a result our Portland location provides a laboratory for the advanced study of urban architecture, developing architecture with strong connections to the urban landscape, strengthening relationships between individual buildings, public spaces and the fabric of urban neighborhoods. Courses emphasize a strong theoretical foundation in urban design, coupled with design studios that focus on critical issues of the Portland region. They include urban design history and theory, housing, urban planning and developmental economics. Students may combine University of Oregon courses with offerings of the Department of Urban Studies and Planning at Portland State University.

Students may also elect to take a practicum with a Portland architectural firm, a non-profit community organization or public agency as part of their course of studies.
