At the core of the CAP:IC (College of Architecture and Planning: Indianapolis Center) mission is education--providing an urban laboratory for students in Ball State's College of Architecture and Planning. CAP:IC works to partner campus-based design studios with Indianapolis-based projects to provide real-world immersive learning opportunities. 

CAP:IC is home to the master of urban design program, an interdisciplinary program exploring the physical design and development of cities and their components. Our sponsored graduate assistantship program provides these graduate students with another immersive learning opportunity by having them work part time for a firm or organization while pursuing their graduate studies.
