Bachelor of Arts with a major in Architectural Studies

Four year, liberal arts Degree with a Major in Architectural Studies

The Bachelor of Arts in Architectural Studies degree combines a liberal arts education with a general study of architecture and design. Student may select the elective requirements across a broad range of architectural topics or concentrate them within a particular area of focus such as architectural history / theory, design or technology. This four-year degree program requires a minimum of 120 credit hours. This program is specifically designed for students seeking exposure to the contents as concepts of architecture within a liberal arts framework.

 

The B.A. in Architectural Studies is not a pre-professional degree leading to a conventional 2-year master of architecture professional program. And consequently, the program is not designed to prepare the student either for architectural registration or for entry into the architecture profession. It is specifically designed for students seeking exposure to the conceptual content of architecture within a liberal arts framework. The curriculum is a powerful platform from which to pursue graduate education in related fields or to a Masters of Architecture 3-year program to pursue architectural registration.
