The Yale School of Architecture is one of the constituent professional schools of Yale University. It had its beginnings in the long history of interest that Yale has had in art. "Art was first taught at an American college or university in 1869 when the Yale School of the Fine Arts was established. Yale alumnus and educator Andrew Dickson White was offered the post as the first dean of the school, but turned it down to be the first president of Cornell University. Even earlier, in 1832, Yale opened the Trumbull Art Gallery, the first college-affiliated gallery in the country. The Department of Architecture was established in the School of the Fine Arts in 1916. In 1959 the School of Art and Architecture, as it was then known, was made into a fully graduate professional school. In 1972 Yale designated the School of Architecture as its own separate professional school."

In addition to offering a course of study for undergraduates in Yale College which leads to a Bachelor of Arts, the school awards the graduate degrees of Master of Architecture and Master of Environmental Design. The school is generally regarded as one of the world's most prestigious architecture schools, with a low acceptance rate and hundreds of famous graduates including George Nelson, Eero Saarinen, James Polshek, Sir Norman Foster, Richard Rogers, Jaquelin Robertson, James Stewart Polshek, Robert A.M. Stern, Stanley Tigerman, Charles Gwathmey, David Childs, Andres Duany, William McDonough, Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk and Maya Lin; and, faculty members including Louis Kahn, Cesar Pelli, Paul Rudolph, Frank Gehry, Joshua Prince-Ramus, Zaha Hadid, Peter Eisenman, Greg Lynn, Demetri Porphyrios and Robert A. M. Stern, the Dean of the School.

The School's main building, the Yale Art and Architecture Building (or "A & A Building") is the masterpiece of the school's former dean, Paul Rudolph.
