Welcome Jilin Jianzhu University Students

Greetings from California Baptist University!

We are thrilled and excited that you are thinking of participating in this Special semester-long Architecture program between the Jilin Jianzhu University and California Baptist University.

Located in the No.1 tourist destination of the United States, California Baptist University represents one of the best educational values among private universities in California with extremely competitive costs. CBU is the perfect college destination for international students searching for the best combination of academic quality and cultural opportunity in a safe and friendly environment.  In addition, CBU is consistently included in U.S. News & World Report’s annual “Best Colleges” rankings.

CBU’s Architecture major creates a rich academic environment marked by the confluence of advanced practice, contemporary theory and social engagement. Our primary goal is to help students develop the capacity and judgment necessary to understand the built environment and generate architecture as a critical response, so that each student can engage both the discipline of architecture and the multiple discourses—artistic, technological, social, political, environmental, economic. Through our teaching and public programming, we will help students gain a deeper knowledge of architecture’s techniques, traditions, methods of inquiry, and modes of production, so they emerge with the intellectual breadth and acuity to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world that demands agility and innovation.

We have carefully developed aggressive curricula that teaches the latest technologies in order to fully enrich students’ academic and culture experience while in the United States. At the same time, our small classes and caring faculty provide a safe, supportive community that nurtures creative freedom and risk-taking. CBU prepares future architects, artists, and designers who are bold in their pursuit of artistic excellence and leadership. We welcome you to this community, and we challenge you to live your purpose beyond your wildest imagination.
