The Design Mentorship program is a volunteer-based mentor placement initiative designed to pair architecture, interiors, historic preservation and urban design students with professional working in a related field. The program provides an opportunity for students to learn from experienced professionals with similar interests and begin to build their professional network. Students and mentors are invited to attend monthly networking events and are encouraged to schedule additional times to meet on their own as necessary.
To join, students and professionals can select the corresponding option below and complete a brief questionnaire.
Details about our monthly networking events can be found on the College Calendar.

For the most part, yes. A limited number of architectural and interior design courses are available for non-majors. For example, ID 161, ID 162, ID 101, ID 102, ARC 111, HP 101, DES 101. For further information, please contact the College of Design Student Services Office, 108 Pence Hall.
Yes, the majority of summer courses are part of Education Abroad programs. For further information, please contact the College of Design Student Services Office, 108 Pence Hall.
No, but we encourage students to gain real-world experience through spring break shadowing and practice previews, internships, education abroad treks, and any other ways to get to know the world and the place of design within it.
This varies from year to year. But, for example, nearly every 2016 graduate of the School of Interiors has a job. Some had them before graduation but more typically the transition to the profession occurs in the first few months after graduation. Because so many of our students participate in shadowing and internships, these transitions often happen at some of the very same firms and in the very same cities where students have spent some time.
