The Common First Year curriculum introduces students to design through courses in three areas: Technique, Design Discipline, and Design Practice. In addition, students take university courses in Math, English, Communications and a general education elective.
Our d.ONE program and our fourth-year collaborate studios are the hallmark of our hands-on, experiential learning opportunities. Achieving the vision of N2025, as students at UNL, undergraduates will have multiple opportunities to engage in documented experiential learning throughout their career. Experiential learning is all about encountering new situations, reflecting on observations and actively applying them to the world around us. All undergraduates in the College of Architecture must take an Experiential Learning (EL) designated course. DSGN 110 and DSGN 410 have been designated as the EL courses in the College of Architecture, however the college offers a multitude of experiential opportunities from UCARE, to studios, to internships, to study abroad offerings.
