With passionate faculty, interdisciplinary collaboration, and award-winning facilities that encourage hands-on learning, APDesign offers an educational experience unlike anywhere else.
Our programs are rooted in a shared love of aesthetic design and a shared respect for the impact of design and innovation on all members of society. Students in our programs gain a uniquely comprehensive and collaborative approach to design that allows our graduates to redefine the boundaries of traditional design and planning practice and become leaders in our society.
APDesign graduates are in high demand, with nearly 100% of our graduates hired immediately into their areas of discipline. Because of our opportunities for research, involvement, corporate partnerships and networking, our graduates leave K-State prepared for the professional world.
5-year master's programs
APDesign offers five-year accredited degrees designed for high school graduates and transfer students in architecture, landscape architecture, interior architecture and industrial design, and regional and community planning. The first year is spent in a cohort-style program, called Environmental Design, that provides students with shared values, common principles, and meaningful relationships that continue to benefit them as they enter their specialized areas of interest and beyond.
