Welcome to the web log of the Savannah College of Art and Design Department of Architecture.
The Savannah College of Art and Design Architecture Program provides a cross-disciplined learning experience within an art-enriched context. This program promotes knowledge, skills, and judgment that culminate in a professional career with emphasis on design excellence, leadership, critical thinking, global awareness, ethical values, and communication skills.
For more information on the terminology Episteme and Techne, please read the associated entry at the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. The use of the terminology in this context directly relates to the vision of the SCAD Department of Architecture, in as much, graduates of the department are balanced in the disciplines of theory and practice with a thorough understanding of how these aspects influence each other reciprocally. Additionally, the SCAD Department of Architecture recognizes architecture as a multidisciplinary subject, that when critically evaluated, can influence interdisciplinary outcomes.
