PHI KAPPA PHI

Phi Kappa Phi, a national scholastic honor society founded in 1897, now contains 282 chapters nationwide. It is one of the most prestigious scholastic honor societies in the United States. The LSU chapter was founded in 1930 as the 43rdchapter in the nation. At the present time, the national office is located on this campus in the French House.

The primary objectives of Phi Kappa Phi are to promote the pursuit of excellence in higher education and to recognize outstanding achievement by students and faculty through election to membership and through various awards and fellowships. Phi Kappa Phi is unique because it recognizes superior scholarship in all academic fields, rather than restricting membership to a limited field. Juniors in the top five percent and senior and graduate students in the top ten percent of their classes may be invited to become members of Phi Kappa Phi. New LSU Phi Kappa Phi members are initiated and honored in the spring semester each year and wear identifying ribbons on their academic gowns at commencement exercises.

TAU SIGMA DELTA

Tau Sigma Delta () was founded in 1913 to recognize excellence in art and design education. It is a scholastic honor society open to students enrolled in accredited degree programs in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Interior Design, or Art who have a minimum grade point average of 3.00 and who rank in the upper 20 percent of the cohort in their discipline. The Alpha Zeta chapter at LSU performs service for the University and for the community at large through the creative work of its members. New members are initiated and honored in the spring semester, and wear identifying stoles on their academic gowns at commencement exercises.

GRADUATE PROGRAMS

The Master of Science in Architecture, Master of Fine Arts, Master of Arts in Art History, and Master of Landscape Architecture are offered through the Graduate School. Consult the Graduate Bulletin.

The School of Architecture, a member of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture, offers professional degree programs at both the undergraduate and the graduate levels. Preparation for the profession of architecture requires both formal education and practical experience followed by a professional examination and registration.

In the United States, most state registration boards require a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a prerequisite for licensure. The National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), which is the sole agency authorized to accredit U. S. professional degree programs in architecture, recognizes two types of degrees: the Bachelor of Architecture and the Master of Architecture. A program may be granted a five-year, three-year, or two-year term of accreditation, depending on its degree of conformance with established educational standards.

Master's degree programs may consist of a preprofessional undergraduate degree and a professional graduate degree, which when earned sequentially, comprise an accredited professional education. However, the preprofessional degree is not, by itself, recognized as an accredited degree.

Undergraduate Admission Requirements

Admission to the beginning design courses in the NAAB accredited Bachelor of Architecture program (ARCH 1001, 1003) is selective and is based on high school academic grade point average (gpa) and ACT or SAT scores. Individuals who believe there are additional factors that should be considered in evaluating their applications are encouraged to contact the School of Architecture in writing and/or schedule an on-campus interview.

The top 80 students will be admitted to the beginning design courses in the fall semester of each academic year. Students who have been approved for admission will be notified in writing. Students not admitted to the beginning design courses will not be allowed to register for architecture courses other than those listed as general education courses.

Transfer students will be considered for admission to the architecture program and the beginning design courses on a space-available basis. Admission is competitive. Transfer students are expected to have earned a minimum 2.75 gpa (on a 4-point scale, based on 30 hours or more). The review of transfer students will include a select number of students already enrolled at LSU who have applied to transfer into the architecture program. Transfer students are strongly encouraged to apply prior to February 15 for admission into the following fall semester.

Transfer credit for architecture courses as substitutions for required courses in the school's curriculum will be considered only if these courses have been taken as part of an architecture program accredited by the NAAB. Transfer students desiring credit for design studio courses will also be required to submit a portfolio for faculty evaluation.

Admission Requirements to the Third Year

There will be, prior to admission to the third year of study (upper division), a scholastic and portfolio review. No more than 36 students will be approved for advancement to the upper division each year. The School of Architecture reserves the right to deny admission to the third year of study based on this review.

Admission Requirements for the Fifth Year

Entrance to the fifth year will be granted only to those students who have successfully completed all required course work in years one through four. Admission to the fifth year will be in the fall semester only.

Graduate Program

The newly approved Master of Architecture curriculum is a candidate for NAAB accreditation. The NAAB grants candidacy status to new programs that have developed viable plans for achieving initial accreditation. Candidacy status indicates that a program should be accredited within six years of achieving candidacy, if its plan is properly implemented. Initial accreditation is retro-active, protecting the value of the degrees received by the first graduates. More information on the Master of Architecture program, including admissions requirements, is available by contacting the school directly.

Personal Computer Requirement

Students are required to have their own personal computer upon entering the second year studio courses. Contact the School of Architecture for information regarding type, specifications, and software.

Bachelor of Interior Design Degree


The Bachelor of Interior Designcurriculum at LSU is accredited by the Foundation for Interior Design Education Research (FIDER).

Interior design involves shaping, planning, and furnishing interior spaces ranging in scale from single family residences to large commercial and institutional projects. Designers work with architects, developers or private clients to create distinctive spaces that enhance the quality of life, increase productivity and protect the health, safety and welfare of the public. Specific requirements addressing education, practical experience and professional examination regulate the practice of interior design in Louisiana and many other states. Opportunity exists within the profession to focus on specializations such as lighting, furniture and exhibition design, historic restoration and set design.

Within the curriculum, creative problem solving, research and analysis, and graphic skills are emphasized, supporting activities in the design studios which form the core of the educational experience. Complementing this strong emphasis on design are liberal arts, technical, business, and communication course requirements. A required internship offers additional preparation and insight into the profession. Interdisciplinary work with other disciplines in the College of Art and Design is encouraged.

Admission Requirements Admission into the professional interior design program (years two-four) is selective. Applications are accepted early in the spring semester and the selection process occurs prior to fall semester course scheduling. Applicants must meet the following requirements:

Completion of or enrollment in ID 1051, ART 1847, CM 1010 orLA 1182, ART 1011 orLA 1153 or departmental approved substitutions for these courses.

Have an earned overall gpa of at least 2.75 at time of application.

Prepare a portfolio of art and design work done in required first year courses.

Application forms, deadlines, and detailed portfolio requirements may be obtained in Room 402 Design Building.
Students who are unable to meet the specified admission criteria may be considered for admission on a space-available basis.
Students not admitted will not be permitted to register for interior design courses other than those listed as general educationcourses.

Qualified transfer students from other LSU programs or from other institutions are expected to have an earned overall gpa of at least 2.75. Students seeking credit for design courses must submit a portfolio for evaluation. Credit earned in two and three year preprofessional programs may be accepted if it is determined to be equivalent to degree work in the curriculum. All transfer students are accepted on a space-available basis.

Personal Computer Requirement After acceptance into the professional program (at the beginning of year two), students are required to have their own personal computer. Information may be obtained in Room 402 Design Building.

"D" Grades and Repetition of Courses Interior design majors must pass the following courses with a grade of "C" or better: (1) all required College of Art and Design courses and approved professional electives; and (2) English 1002, 1003, or 1005. A student who earns a "D" or "F" in a course in which a minimum grade of "C" is required must register for the course again in the next regular semester in which the student is enrolled and the course is offered.

English Proficiency To be certified as proficient in English, students must earn a grade of "C" or better in English 1002, 1003, 1005 (international students), or have the equivalent in transfer credit. Students whose grades are lower than "C" must repeat the course or earn a "C" or better in English 2002.

Landscape architecture offers a unique career opportunity to the student concerned with the environment and the quality of life in our cities and outdoor surroundings. Landscape architecture is a discipline combining art, natural sciences, and social and cultural disciplines with a strong design and technological base. Those in the profession create and shape the places where people live, work, and play. Landscape architects design parks and recreational facilities, business parks, urban public spaces, private gardens, and are involved in the design of new communities and cities.

Work on landscape architectural projects frequently involves collaboration with other professionals. A single project may routinely involve landscape architects, architects, artists, city planners, engineers, lawyers, sociologists, geologists, economists, and environmental scientists. Such professional collaborations are a stimulating and rewarding aspect of the profession.

LSU is the only school in Louisiana with a nationally accredited curriculum in landscape architecture, attracting students from the U.S. and many foreign countries. The five-year curriculum affords a well-rounded course of study based on standards set by the American Society of Landscape Architects. The program integrates a rich, educational experience that provides the student with an ethical framework, an historical background, and the design and technical knowledge critical to the profession.

In addition to design, the education of landscape architects includes graphic communication, written and verbal communication, construction and engineering methods, plant material identification, design, computer applications, and basic business and legal concepts.

Graduates of this program find employment within Louisiana, throughout the south, on the east and west coasts, and overseas. Upon satisfactory completion of the undergraduate program, the degree of Bachelor of Landscape Architecture is awarded.

Each year more than 25 students are selected to receive scholarships or other financial awards. Students interested in applying for aid offered by the School of Landscape Architecture should contact the school office.
