What will I learn?

Whether you choose to study architecture at NYIT’s cosmopolitan urban campus in Manhattan or our suburban location on Long Island’s Gold Coast, you’ll experience a professional degree program that is career-oriented, creatively focused, and committed to sustainable design practices. We leverage the power of technology and guide you to employ its latest, most useful tools.

But above all, we value the art of architecture—the exquisite, irreplaceable relationship among the eye, the hand, and the mind that alone can conceive and create design solutions that nourish humanity, preserve the environment, and anticipate the needs of the next generation.

The first two years of our five-year undergraduate program features a core liberal curriculum as well as studies in architectural history, design fundamentals, and building technology. Upon successful completion of the two year core program, you will have the option of continuing in our four-year B.S.A.T. program, or applying for admission to our NAAB-accredited B.Arch. program.

If accepted into the B.Arch. program, you’ll be required to complete an additional three years of design studios, highlighted by small classes taught by leading professionals who encourage creative risk-taking and collaboration. Each year, you’ll learn to solve progressively more complex challenges with an increasingly well-developed set of representation and design skills:

Third year is dedicated to solving architectural problems involving small but increasingly more complex building programs.
Fourth year focuses on urban and community design and building design programs that require inventive structural systems.
Fifth year is devoted to a terminal thesis project that will demonstrate your cumulative grasp of all of the factors that influence the design of a complex work of architecture.

Formal study and coursework is augmented by site visits, lectures, and other opportunities to learn from and work with members of NYIT’s outstanding professional network of alumni and their prominent industry connections.

Completion of the B.Arch. degree will allow you to proceed with the sequence of internship and professional steps that lead to licensure and certification from the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards. The B.Arch. also prepares you for New York state licensure and reciprocal licensure in other states.
