The University of Southern California is an internationally recognized research university located at the center of a dynamic Los Angeles. USC established architecture as an academic discipline within its College of Liberal Arts in 1914. By 1919, the University had established a Department of Art and Architecture under the leadership of Arthur Weatherhead and had begun to graduate such renowned alumni as Paul R. Williams (the 1st African-American member of the American Institute of Architects). By 1925, a stand-alone School of Architecture was established, and a full professional Bachelor of Architecture curriculum was put in place in 1928. The first of several Master of Architecture programs was approved in 1932. The USC School of Architecture ranks as one of the top ten architecture schools in the US with two Pritzker Prize-winning alumni, Frank Gehry ‘54 and Thom Mayne ’69.

USC particularly encourages women, members of underrepresented groups, veterans, and individuals with disabilities to apply.
