STARKVILLE – For prospective students considering an academic major in architecture, Mississippi State is announcing the dates of its summer introductory program.

Taking place June 6-13, the 2014 Design Discovery Workshop Camp is offered by the university’s School of Architecture, part of College of Architecture, Art and Design.

The annual session was created specifically for high school students age 16 and older–especially entering MSU freshmen–with an interest in architecture or related design fields. Activities simulate the levels of information processing, individual skills and focused intensity required of students enrolled in the state’s only accredited architecture program.

The 45 camper slots are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. The total cost of $595 includes a $100 non-refundable application processing fee.

Design Discovery coincides with MSU’s summer orientation sessions. Since incoming freshmen may pre-enroll for fall classes during orientation, prospective architecture majors are encouraged to attend both the camp and an orientation session.

With support of Johnson-McAdams P.A., a Greenwood architectural firm, a limited number of scholarships are available to either Leflore County residents or members of minorities under-represented in higher education. Scholarship application forms are available at

Scholarships also are available for students in Lee, Pontotoc and Union counties, thanks to the Toyota Wellspring Education Fund. Visit to learn more.
