Career Explorations in Architecture
Summer Pre-College Program
Career Explorations offers students a short, intensive and engaging introduction to architecture. As high schoolers consider careers, they may not yet have been exposed to the unique blend of visual orientation, creative process, academic investigation and professional training that forms an architectural education. Students will spend three weeks exploring the ideas, methods, and issues of architecture with Tulane professors and local practicing architects. Lectures, studio time, digital workshops, field trips, discussions, and critiques will be supplemented by regular design exercises to be completed outside class time.
The program is intended for high school students who have completed at least their sophomore year. Younger students who demonstrate maturity in their attitudes and schoolwork may also apply. High school graduates may apply as well, and presently enrolled Tulane and Newcomb students may take the course for college credit.
The program runs from July 8-28, 2018. Class meets in the mornings from 9:30-11:30 a.m. for a lecture, film screening or a skill building demonstration. In the afternoon, studio meets from 1-3:30 p.m. Field trips are scheduled for Saturdays and some evenings.
At the completion of the course, high school students who pursue a degree at Tulane University will have earned a university elective worth three credit hours.
Tuition is $4,425 and covers the full cost of instruction, activities, field trips, food, lodging and shuttle service to and from the airport.
All required materials for the course will be supplied by the program.
Students have the opportunity to live on campus in one of Tulane’s residence halls – equipped with lounges, kitchenettes and laundry facilities. While living on campus, students will also have access to the Reily Student Recreation Center. Students enjoy the dining on campus options provided by our meal plan.
Learning and leisure activities extend beyond the classroom and campus. New Orleans offers a vibrant array of cultural and historical sites and many recreational attractions. Group outings and activities may include baseball games, movie nights, outdoor adventures, the zoo and aquarium, bowling, swimming and more.
