BAC students and the Boston Skyline

For more than 125 years, the Boston Architectural College (BAC) has been providing students with an exceptional design education. The BAC distinguishes itself as the only college or university among the several hundred nationally accredited degree-granting programs in design that requires its students to complete academic coursework while simultaneously acquiring vital professional skills and expertise through non-classroom instruction and employment in their discipline. This hands-on, concurrent approach enables our students to jumpstart their careers while still attending classes, positioning them to be exceptionally competitive in the marketplace. The success of this unique learning model is evidenced by the fact that between 85 and 90 percent of the students in each graduating class are employed in the design field on the day they graduate.
