It establishes a firm understanding of the field of architecture and an expansive way to view the world.

  • It provides all prerequisites for eligibility to enter a two-year accredited professional master of architecture degree program for those seeking licensure.
  • There are separate admission requirements for our undergraduate major and our master of architecture (MArch) program.
  • Admission and completion of the undergraduate degree does not guarantee admission to the graduate program.
