The Architecture Program offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs, as well as certificates in Historic Preservation and Urban Design.
The undergraduate program culminates in a four-year Bachelor of Science in Architecture. Students who complete this degree can then apply for a two-year Master of Architecture degree. This type of program (often described as a 4+2 curriculum) features a pre-professional baccalaureate degree, which when combined with an accredited professional degree, qualifies recipients for internship and eventual professional registration.
At the graduate level, two degrees are offered in the Architecture Program – the accredited Master of Architecture degree and the post-professional Master of Science in Architecture degree with a concentration in Urban Design.
Graduate students may also gain additional expertise in areas of interest through Certificate Programs in Historic Preservation and Urban Design.
Students interested in architecture and urban planning can also apply for the dual degree program in Architecture and Community Planning.
High school students interested in studying architecture can earn college credit through the Discovering Architecture workshop held every summer.
