Environmental Design Studies

The curriculum for the first year forms the foundation of the accredited professional programs in architecture, interior architecture and product design, landscape architecture, and regional and community planning.

Environmental Design Studies - First semester (16 credit hours)

  • K-State 8 General Education elective Credits: 3

Environmental Design Studies - Second semester (15 credit hours)


High school mathematics prerequisites: Entering freshmen or transfer students must have fulfilled the minimum high school prerequisites: algebra I (one unit): plane geometry (one unit); algebra II (one unit); and trigonometry (one-half unit) before entering the College of Architecture, Planning and Design. The prerequisites may be fulfilled at Kansas State University, or elsewhere, with the exception of geometry, which is not taught at K-State. Completing these courses at K-State will extend the time required to complete the degree program.

After satisfactory completion of the Environmental Design Studies Program, students are eligible to apply for admission to the programs of Architecture, Interior Architecture and Product Design, Landscape Architecture or Regional and Community Planning.

Due to accreditation standards and limited resources, each professional program has limited studio space available. Therefore, positions in second year are awarded on a competitive basis.
