Morrisville provided me with a sound foundation necessary to become the young professional I am today.  Specifically, the technical skill set I learned through the dedicated faculty placed me in advanced courses upon graduation, positioning me further ahead of my peers.  Not only was I thoroughly introduced to the importance of design within the profession of architecture and its allied fields, but Morrisville also provided me a platform to excel within the public service and leadership sector of the profession.  I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to attend, embrace, and excel as a Mustang during my tenure at MSC.

Architectural Studies and Design A.S.



Students in this program have access to two architecture studios. Morrisville's state of the art Architectural Studies and Design Studio Complex is fully wired and is accessible to students in the program 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Equipment includes a large format scanner, plotter, small format scanner, color printer, diazo machine, Xerox machine and a profession photo area. Students also have access to digital cameras, CD burners, Zip drive and other electronic media devices. This equipment is equivalent to that which the students would encounter in professional schools of architecture and architectural firms.

The Architectural Studies and Design AS degree program is a ThinkPad University program in which laptop computers are fully integrated into the classroom environment.

The commanding building welcomes visitors with a dramatic vaulted and double-height entrance atrium and a gallery that displays students' work. Alluring elements include dramatic arches, interlocking spaces and a double-height studio, a mezzanine-level studio suspended above the second floor, and four studios that envelop students in vast space and light.

A wood shop where students build small-scale models of wood buildings and fabricate shelter projects for class, and a digital production and photo area soon to be equipped with universal laser cutter and rapid prototyping machines, are cutting-edge elements that further add to the 21st century charm of the environment.
