Milton S. Yergens

Adjunct Professor of Architecture


B.Arch., North Dakota State University, 1973

M.Arch., University of Arizona 1995,

Research and Interest:

As a faculty member from 1987-2003, my coursework was polarized from foundation studies, including design communication and beginning design studio, to critiquing architectural design thesis students and delivering a variety of professional fifth year seminars. Now as adjunct studio critic at the third year, I clearly understand the student's past exposure and their future demands and I can respond accordingly. My continued architectural practice contributes to this year's technical / pragmatic coursework.
