At the February 15 reception, students will be in attendance and available to discuss their work and experiences participating in the UMA architecture program. The Student Architecture Show also recognizes outstanding student exhibits with awards along with scholarships.

“The annual Student Architecture Show is a highlight of the academic year,” said Eric Stark, Associate Professor of Architecture.  “It is an excellent forum for demonstrating how our hands-on, integrated approach benefits the students work and connects UMA to community projects,” Stark continued.

The Bachelor of Architecture program at UMA is the only five-year professional architecture degree program in Maine and provides students with a path towards architectural licensure. The program faculty teach architecture through engagement, educating and empowering students to explore, investigate, and analyze the built environment. Engagement brings students into active contact with each other, their coursework, and community partners across Maine.
