Both the Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch.) and the Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies (B.S.A.S.) programs provide a highly integrated, comprehensive education that will help prepare you for the balance of critical thinking and practical skills needed to succeed in the professional setting.

Fully Integrated Program

The areas of architectural design, history and technology intersect throughout the program. For example, while you’re learning about a particular architectural development in history class, you’ll be designing your own examples in studio, all while learning about the new conditions that require architects to consider innovative approaches to their work. Your coursework in environmental science will enhance the way you think about the ecological impact of architecture and increase your capacity to respond to the needs of sustainable design. This multidisciplinary integration helps provide a deeper understanding of the content and promotes higher-level analytical skills.

Design Your Own Path

The B.Arch. program sets aside a generous number of elective credits for you to pursue specialized interests within architecture, related to architecture or completely separate from architecture. This flexibility helps provide you with balance needed to define your own version of success.
