Before attending Morrisville State, I knew very little about the architecture industry; but what I did know - it was my dream. The skills I acquired at MSC helped me on my journey to achieve my vision of becoming an architect.
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.
