Summer programs at SAAHP are aimed at enrichment, acceleration and special projects in the interactive environment that characterizes summer study. They are offered in the undergraduate, graduate study areas and minors.
Summer courses are scheduled at the introductory, intermediate and advanced levels on the Bristol campus, with study abroad options included in each summer schedule. Courses offered regularly include architecture and visual arts studios, coursework in art and architectural history and structures coursework in architecture.
Summer is the starting point for the 3.5 year Master of Architecture program for students with undergraduate degrees in other fields, for post-professional study in the MS in Architecture program, and also includes coursework for current graduate students in the Master of Architecture and MS in Historic Preservation programs. The International Fellows Program can be attended as a two-day conference, or by including pre-conference and post-conference work can be completed for graduate credit.
SAAHP offers the Summer Academy in Architecture, a 3 college credit / four week program, and a special Summer Intensive one week program for students from Philadelphia’s Charter High School for Architecture and Design (CHAD), Brooklyn’s High School for the Arts and Central Falls High School, Rhode Island.
The Field School in Building Archaeology, offered by Roger Williams University in collaboration with the Newport Restoration Foundation, provides participants with an intensive 3-week summer learning experience in the theory, methods, and practice of building archaeology – the investigation, documentation and interpretation of historic buildings.
