To graduate with a specialization in Architecture and EnvironmentalDesign, a student must complete the following courses in addition to thegeneral breadth requirements for an associate degree. For transfer students,these courses will provide students with the tools needed to construct aportfolio that will be required to transfer into Architecture Programs at4-year institutions. Along with a successful portfolio, these courses shouldalso constitute the first two years of an Architecture Program. In addition,these courses should help students interested in transferring to 4-year institutionsin Environmental Design fields, and as Landscape Architecture, Interior Designand Urban Planning majors.

The new curriculum's mission& philosophy reflect modern and current standards and is relevant to currentpractice architecture and related fields. The new curriculum is leveled fromsimple to complex which are reflected in each course SLO's. The structure ofthe new curriculum will augment knowledge necessary for the student to transfer.The unifying theme of the new curriculum includes knowledge, skills, andabilities and the design and problem solve to integrate concepts andcompetencies required to function as a successful transfer student.
The mission of the Associate Degree Architectureand Environmental Design is consistent with the mission statement of SanBernardino Valley College to maintain a culture of continuous improvement and acommitment to provide high-quality education, innovative instruction, andservices to a diverse community of learners. The mission of Associate Degree Architecture and Environmental Design isto provide comprehensive, quality transfer student education by engagingdiverse learners in future academic progress and future professional practicefor the purpose of meeting the needs of the community.
The Associate Degree Architecture andEnvironmental Design at San Bernardino Valley College resolves to advance theprofession of Architecture and Environmental Design by empowering our graduatesto value scholarly lifelong learning to produce the outcome of safe, informed,responsible, and active partners in their communities.
The SanBernardino Community College Architecture and Environmental Design Departmentembraces the values of SBCCD and the AIA, NCARB. This program at SBVC values:

The philosophy of San BernardinoValley College Associate Degree Architecture and Environmental Design Programis in alignment with the mission and vision statements of San Bernardino ValleyCollege (SBVC) and San Bernardino Community College District (SBCCD) tomaintain a culture of continuous improvement and a commitment to providehigh-quality education, innovative instruction, and services to a diversecommunity of learners.
The San Bernardino Valley CollegeAssociate Degree Architecture and Environmental Design curriculum frameworkfocuses on the person, design problem solving, environment, and professionalism.
AIA and transfer
These concepts are patient-centeredcare, teamwork and collaboration, quality improvement, evidence-based practice,safety, and informatics.
San Bernardino Valley College Architectureand Environmental Design program is submitting a major curriculum revision. Thenew curriculum will incorporate the consideration of transferring to Cal PolyPomona Architectural program as the unifying theme to guide the curriculumchange. Preparing students for the Architecture as well as related programssuch as Urban Planning, Landscape Architecture, and Construction management isintegrated throughout the new curriculum.
The Program Learning Outcomes(PLO's) are reflective of the standards needed to transfer to a NAB accreditedschool such as Cal Poly Pomona. The SBVC Architectural Program, utilizecritical thinking principles to provide optimal outcomes and continuous qualityimprovement, serve and provide ethical leadership for the design needs of ourdiverse community and environment, and trends in technology to enhance designand communication and the delivery design concepts. Additional PLO's includethe graduate to be prepared to function as an entry-level employee in aprofessional office, and be prepared to continue their education andparticipate in professional development and continue to pursue lifelonglearning.
The new curriculum is driven bythe PLO's and are reflected in the Student Learning Outcomes (SLO's) and End ofProgram Learning Outcomes. The PLO's encompass the core values (curriculumthreads), the Mission Statement, and Philosophy that the faculty determinedwere the core of the program. The SLO's lead to the curriculum content, assistin assessing new professional standards, facilitate faculty in identification ofcontent to be removed or changed, and also guide the instruction methodologyand evaluation process. The curriculum is leveled and will follow in the simpleto complex format.
PROGRAM LEARNING OUTCOMES
