All classes are suspended for the week of March 16. Starting the week of March 23, all classes will resume entirely online. Tulane School of Architecture (TuSA) remains open with most faculty and staff working remotely. Students can be granted access to work in the building only with prior approval from the school. At this time, we are not hosting admissions tours.

Please continue to check your Tulane email, Canvas, the TuSA COVID-19 FAQ, and the Tulane Emergency Management page for updates.

Tulane is working with students who have difficult personal circumstances that would make leaving campus a challenge or will face complications in online learning once they return home. In response, we have set up the Tulane Student Emergency Aid and Assistance Fund to address current student needs.

Personalized assistance and advising is available to students within the School of Architecture through one-on-one advising, career workshops and an elective course. These offerings provide students opportunities to refine interview skills, develop professional contacts and practice career building skills.

All students can make appointments for personalized assistance with Kristen Jones, program manager for career services and external relations.

Resume, Cover Letter, and Portfolio Advising

Our career services manager helps students as they develop their resumes and portfolios into professional, succinct documents. This is an ongoing process that requires continual review and iterations. Students are encouraged to have their documents reviewed by both Kristen Jones and faculty members and participate in classes and workshops offered on these topics. Schedule a meeting with Kristen Jones.

Workshops

Our career services manager hosts various workshops and student Q&A discussions based on relevant topics within the profession. Topics and guest speakers are coordinated to inform students on pertinent issues such as licensure, career path trajectories and the importance of professional affiliations.

Alumni Network

Tulane alumni practice throughout the United States, in architecture and a variety of related fields. These successful design professionals often prefer to hire Tulane graduates and are effective area contacts for students seeking employment.

The school has a strong alumni career networking program which coordinates individual interviewing days, as well as a large Career Days event, which hosts both alumni and non-alumni affiliates. Students are able to directly submit their resume and portfolios to these networks through our website here by emailing their materials to Kristen Jones.

Students also have access to our Alumni Council, a global group of committed alumni who help support the careers of students and graduates through mentorship and programming. These various channels assist students in securing pre- and post-graduate internships.
