Bachelor of Science in Environmental Design

Founded in 1918, Ball State is a state-assisted residential university in Muncie, Indiana, a midsize Midwestern city one hour northeast of Indianapolis. Ball State is ranked a research university, high research activity by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. Individual programs are accredited by various regional and national organizations. At Ball State, they're more than just educators—they're educational entrepreneurs. Combining top-flight talent with the top-notch resources they have to offer, theirr students and faculty inject endless energy and creativity into what they teach and how they learn. The result—a university The Princeton Review calls one of the best in the Midwest. To fulfill Ball State's mission of fundamentally changing their students, researchers and external partners, they offer comprehensive academic opportunities, including about 180 undergraduate majors and preprofessional programs and more than 100 master's and doctoral degrees. Ball State's programs in architecture, telecommunications, landscape architecture, education, entrepreneurship and online master’s degree in nursing are consistently ranked among the best in the nation. That excellence is only possible because of the quality of Ball State's faculty and their commitment to teaching. More than 90 percent of Ball State's classes are taught by professors. That's almost unheard of at an institution of Ball State's size. Ball State believes that for an educational experience to be successful, it should be just that—an experience. So Ball State has made a unique commitment to immersive learning programs that incorporate research, projects with community partners and capstone experiences into the curriculum. Acting, musical theatre, and telecommunications students participate in talent showcases in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. Students in Ball State's entrepreneurship program face the ultimate pass or fail test—to graduate, they must pitch a business plan that a panel of experts deems viable. Ball State enrolls about 21,000 students, with more than 17,800 attending on campus. Students come from 48 states, two U.S. territories, about 43 countries, and every Indiana county. Out-of-state students make up about 13 percent of on-campus enrollment, and ethnic minorities comprise about 12 percent. The university enrolls more than 675 international students. Today, Ball State’s entrepreneurial spirit continues to shine through numerous expansions and additions of degree offerings, technological resources, immersive learning opportunities, community outreach projects, and state-of-the-art facilities. These investments are preparing bright students to take advantage of current and emerging job opportunities, meet society’s most pressing needs and serve the communities in which they will live and work.
