During the third year of design studio students may participate in at least one of a variety of field studies opportunities aimed at enriching students’ learning experience and preparing students for professional life. These opportunities include both an international studies program with a variety of options for study abroad as well as the possibility of participation in the Rural Studio - a program based in rural west Alabama where students engage local communities via hands-on service-learning projects to help meet needs of shelter and improved quality-of-life. In addition to the required third year opportunities, students may have additional opportunities during their fifth year of study to participate in the Rural Studio or the Auburn Center for Architecture and Urban Studies - a design center in downtown Birmingham where upper-level students and faculty engage in community-centered, service-learning activities. Participation in each of these programs is limited, and students may be allowed to participate based on academic standing, available resources, and a competitive selection process.
