Preprofessional Degree, 126 Credits
The core of the undergraduate architecture curriculum is a sequence of courses in design, design communications, architectural history, structures, environmental systems, and building technology. Related electives in architecture and a variety of other disciplines are available. The program culminates with an architectural design capstone project.
You may pursue this degree as either a bachelor of science (BS) or a bachelor of arts (BA). The BA degree requires two years (or the equivalent) of study in a foreign language.
The following schedule outlines the typical course of study for this degree:
*Students may register for ARCH 455 Internship (0 credits) with approval of the internship coordinator. Credit received in ARCH 455 can count toward meeting the master of architecture (MArch) professional degree internship requirement.
*Students may register for ARCH 405 (3 credits) in the first summer after the second year and ARCH 406 (3 credits) in the first summer after the third year in lieu of registering for ARCH 402 in the spring of the fourth year. Students completing only ARCH 405 will receive elective credit and must complete ARCH 402 in the spring of the fourth year.
