International Programs

While the Graduate and Urban Design program benefits enormously from its Brooklyn location as a hub for both local and imported resources, it recognizes the importance of operating at sites across the world at the levels of both architectural/urban and international experience. In order to give a more robust architectural, urban, and cultural experience to students in this period of globalization the GAUD program offers full-immersion study abroad opportunities in Rome and Havana. Each program engages a complex of issues that are shaping architectural and urban discourse and practice. At the same time, these issues are understood as part of a trajectory that includes the historical material that is an inextricable presence in these locations.
