Architecture Colleges & Degree Programs

Architects are the backbone of society. They design and develop the bridges, structures, roadways, buildings and infrastructure that support just about every aspect of our modern day communities and the societies we live in. And as populations grow, and societies continues to evolve, the need for architects with a vision for the future, and the skills to make things happen, is only going to increase. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) the demand for architects will continue to grow at an annual rate of 17% through 2022–substantially faster than the average for all other occupations.

In order to become an architect, candidates need to earn a bachelor's or master's degree in architecture from an accredited and approved architecture program. Upon program completion, candidates must then pass the Architect Registration Examination (ARE) to become a licensed architect.

While a master's degree in architecture is preferrable, many candidates get their career in architecture started by earning a bachelor's degree. The bachelor's degree in architecture is available as a Bachelor of Science (B.S.), Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) and professional Bachelor Architecture (B.Arch.). Most bachelor's level architecture programs take about 5 years to complete. They're designed to help students acquire the knowledge and develop the critical- thinking and problem-solving skills required to tackle complex construction and architecture projects.

More and more aspiring architects are opting to earn their master's degree in preparation for a career in architecture. The master's degree in architecture is called the Master of Architecture (M.Arch.) and is offered at colleges, universities and professional architecture schools across the nation. Prerequisites for acceptance to top M.Arch programs include a bachelor's degree in architecture from an approved undergraduate program. Program applicants should also have completed basic courses in design theory, CAD software, construction technology and architecture history.

Earning a degree in architecture, whether at the bachelor's or master's level, will prepare candidates to practice architecture and to conduct research in various aspects of the field. Most architecture degree programs will include coursework in architectural design, history, and theory; building structures and environmental systems; designing buildings and construction; project and site planning; professional responsibilities and standards; and related cultural, social, economic, and environmental issues. Students interested in entering an architecture program should have a excellent skills in mathematics, geogmetry, calculus, physics and science. An understanding of computer-aided drafting (CAD) is also beneficial.
