ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN PROGRAM INFORMATION
The Bachelor of Science in Environmental Design (En.D.) program offers individualized study in student-determined aspects of the natural and built environment. Collaborative, community-minded design does not happen solely through lectures; instructors often move classes out of Gould Hall and make the community the classroom. By working with non-profit organizations, governments, neighborhood associations, or other community groups, students learn to turn ideas into actions for real-world projects and everyday people. En.D. students work closely with the staff of the OU Institute for Quality Communities, a community outreach center in the Christopher C. Gibbs College of Architecture that provides services to neighborhoods, towns, and cities in Oklahoma.
Graduates from the undergraduate En.D. program are prepared to step into a master’s program or a professional career. Graduates go on to study city planning, architecture, landscape architecture, construction science or interior design. They work in areas such as community development, downtown revitalization, historic preservation, real estate development, and more.
