Student Organizations
 
The Department of Architecture is home to five registered student organizations. These are the American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS), the Construction Specifications Institute Student Affiliate (CSI-S), the International Interior Design Association Campus Center (IIDA-CC), the National Organization of Minority Architecture Students (NOMAS), and Tau Sigma Delta (TSD), the national architecture and design honor society.
 
These organizations sponsor various events throughout the academic year including workshops, special lectures, and site visits to architecture and design offices and built and under construction projects. They offer an opportunity to meet other students and practicing professionals through participation in professional, educational, and social activities.
 
Membership in AIAS, CSI-S, IIDA-CC, and NOMAS is open to any student in architecture, interior design, or a related area of study.  Students may join at any time.  Membership in TSD is based upon academic excellence demonstrated by students who have completed at least five semesters in architecture or interior design.
  
Honors Program
 
The Department of Architecture Honors Program provides an opportunity for selected Architecture and Interior Design students to enrich their learning experience through honors courses, independent study, a senior thesis, and extracurricular learning experiences. The Honors Program requires a minimum of 15 semester hours of honors work in courses within the Department of Architecture. Students who complete the appropriate degree program with a 3.25 cumulative grade point average will earn a degree that includes the distinction "Honors in Architecture." Moreover, the diploma and record at the University of Memphis will reflect this accomplishment.
