Four-Year, Pre-Professional Degree

Students will jump right into the world of design, through fundamental elements, architectural history, and new emerging technologies. Architecture students will also gain full access to our Fabrication Lab, where they will put 3D printers, laser cutters, and computer model buildings to the test.

The four-year, pre-professional, undergraduate degree is a 126-credit-hour program culminating in a Bachelor of Science in Architecture (B.S. Arch.). The pre-professional architecture program introduces the student to the fundamentals of design. Coursework weaves liberal arts courses with architectural design curriculum; architectural history through the ages; current technological advances in architecture; and the confluence of sustainable design, urbanism, and social justice through design.
