The four-year program in architecture leads to the pre-professional degree of Bachelor of Science in Architecture. The first two years of this program emphasize liberal arts studies and fundamentals in architectural design, theory, and history. The third and fourth years develop abilities in architectural design and building technologies, culminating in the Integrated Design Competition Studio where the totality of knowledge gained in the curriculum is brought to bear in the studio experience. The degree is also offered as an accelerated two-year, post-undergraduate program for students holding bachelor's degrees in other fields.
The Bachelor of Science degree requires a total of 127 credit hours, which includes 81 credit hours of architecture courses. To receive this degree, students must attain a 2.25 minimum GPA in architecture courses and 2.5 cumulative GPA. In the final year of the four-year Bachelor of Science in Architecture program, students may apply for the professional Master of Architecture programs.
