NewSchool of Architecture & Design (NewSchool) is a for-profit college located in downtown San Diego offering degrees in the fields of architecture and design. NewSchool comprises two schools: The School of Architecture and Construction Management houses the undergraduate and graduate architecture and construction management programs while the Domus Academy School of Design at NewSchool offers undergraduate design degrees. NewSchool is part of Laureate Education,[2] which operates an international network of accredited campus-based and online universities.

The school is accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) and offers Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch), Master of Architecture (M.Arch).

History[edit]

The late Richard Welsh founded NewSchool of Architecture in 1980. NewSchool was primarily focused on architecture and construction management undergraduate and graduate degree programs until 2008 when NewSchool was acquired by Laureate Education Inc.[2][3] Laureate's global network of design schools helped form a strong collaboration between NewSchool and Domus Academy School of Design in Milan, Italy. The collaboration lead to the creation of the Domus Academy School of Design at NewSchool which introduced several new design degrees including Interior Architecture & Design, Product Design, Design Studies and Media Design.[4][5] In 2016, the schools partnered to launch a Global Design degree where students study two years in Milan and two years in San Diego.[6]

In 2016 Marvin J. Malecha become President and Chief Academic Officer. Malecha is a fellow in the American Institute of Architects, where he served as national president in 2009.[7][8][9]
