DCP Global

DCP engages student and faculty in all of its disciplines in a wide array of global engagements through the DCP Global program. We seek to ensure all students have access to courses and study programs that link academic and professional education to practices around the world.  This includes:

  • Study abroad programs (both short-term, semester-long, and with opportunities for dual degrees)
  • Research support for topics with global focus
  • Internship/fellowship experiences

DCP has permanent facilities in Vicenza, Italy to support semester-long study in architecture. We work with international partners in Europe, Asia, Central and South America and Australia to provide intensive international engagement and to partner on collaborative research projects. DCP has established an office at the University of Indonesia to facilitate engagement with several of its top universities in the area of architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, sustainability and urban and regional planning. Ongoing partnerships in Singapore with the School of Environment and Design at the National University of Singapore, with the Center for Urban Greenery and Ecology within Singapore’s National Parks Board, in collaboration with the Building Construction Authority Academy of Singapore, and American Center for Education, facilitate study and research opportunities. In addition, DCP programs have developed new course offerings that provide exposure to students in global matters.
