The Summer Career Discovery Program, an intensive two-week program held at the University of Kentucky College of Design from July 10-22, is open to high school students who will be juniors and seniors this fall. The program will introduce students to design education, including the study of architecture and interior design.

The centerpiece of the program will be an intensive design studio in which students will be challenged to think creatively, analyze and present their work to peers and professionals. In addition to the design studio, students will broaden their experience of the design professions through lectures, field trips and workshops.

Admission into the Career Discovery Program is regulated through a selective admission procedure. Students will be selected according to the merit of their cumulative GPA and the quality of their statement of interest. The application and essay must be mailed to the College of Design by July 1.
