BS in Architecture



What will I learn?


Four-Year Pre-Professional Degree

The Bachelor of Science in Architecture (BS-Arch) degree is composed of seven academic semesters and three cooperative (co-op) semesters within four years of undergraduate education. Students are educated in design, construction technologies, digital arts, the humanities, social sciences, and aesthetic expression. Architecture is the culturally responsible design and production of buildings that are useful, durable, meaningful, inspiring, and responsive to their physical and social contexts. Architecture is an art, a technical craft and an ethical practice. Students reinforce their skills in the field through several co-op semesters that offer students the opportunity to work full-time in an architecture firm either locally, nationally, or internationally.

The pre-professional BS Arch degree creates the foundation in the field of architecture as preparation for continued education in a NAAB accredited degree program.
