Transform the world through design
Architects and designers have the potential to transform the lives of people at every scale of their endeavor, from the buildings we live in to the clothes we wear. In the O’More College of Architecture & Design, we strive to nurture a community in which students fulfill their personal gifts and talents through challenging academics in a culture of support, collaboration, and creativity, becoming agents of positive change in their communities and around the world.
O’More students enjoy small class sizes and personalized attention from faculty with distinguished records of scholarship, extensive creative practices, and significant industry experience that enhances their teaching. Curricula engage traditional principles and cutting-edge technologies; classrooms, studios, and supplementary work spaces support every step in the creative process. Integrating professional education with the liberal arts, the O’More programs are also committed to Belmont’s mission to fully equip students to move with ease into their chosen fields and to be flexible for future opportunities. Belmont’s commitment to its Christian heritage of learning and service further ensures that graduates are prepared to pursue paths of fulfillment and meaning in their lives and work.
An O’More education positions graduates to serve and positively influence people and populations by imagining, designing, and realizing a better, more beautiful, and more just world. We would be delighted to welcome you to campus, introduce you to our community of learners, and talk with you about the way that our programs can serve your personal and professional aspirations.
A tight-knit, creative community
Faculty and staff of the O'More College are dedicated to cultivating each student’s capacity to harness the transformative potential of design to increase cultural and environmental sustainability, human equity, and social justice. Our graduates are adaptable and creative professionals who realize a more beautiful and more just world in service of their communities and future generations.
Whether they are in or outside of the studios, our students are always finding new and innovative ways to put their skills and knowledge to work. We believe that this vibrant student culture is an essential part of what makes O'More such a special place to learn and grow.
