Architectural Studies (Architectural Studies)

The Architectural Studies emphasis is a four-year, professional baccalaureate program often referred to as a Pre-Architecture program. The architectural studies emphasis prepares students for success in entry-level jobs in the design and construction industry and for advanced study in architecture (Masters of Architecture, M.Arch.) or other design-related programs. See Opportunity for Employment, Careers in Architectural Studies, and Spotlight on Alumni. Students benefit from the enriched academic research environment and the emphasis on the thinking and making of physical environments that address the needs and aspirations of people. The program strives to blur the boundaries between architecture and interior design by stressing the experience of people in buildings. Alumni are admitted to many highly ranked graduate programs throughout the U.S. With coursework being part of a CIDA Accredited Interior Design Program, pre-architecture students may be eligible for the NCIDQ examination after graduation and experience in the field. For more information see Careers in Interior Design with links to professional organizations and regulations. See Architectural Studies web page for more highlights of program.
