School of Architecture

The BAC is in a lively exchange with the dynamic city of Boston, with its architecture, with practitioners and with faculty.  We offer professionally accredited Bachelor of Architecture and Master of Architecture degree programs that engage students in design practice and academic study concurrently.  Students draw upon their academic studies and their daily workplace or community project learning as they develop their understanding and abilities in writing, drawing, speaking and making.  Students think critically about sustainable design, about social and cultural contexts, and about their own developing identity as architects.

Through the experience of practice, students work collaboratively to engage and transform communities.  Students learn how to decipher people, places, and ecologies to create responsive architecture. The BAC has been engaged in architectural education since 1889.
