Bachelor of Science in Architecture Curriculum

Bachelor of Science in Architecture Curriculum

In the Bachelor of Science in Architecture program, you’ll study a wide range of curricular areas divided into sections of foundation, integration, and synthesis. You’ll also complete a hands-on, individualized project that allows you to explore a topic or challenge that speaks to your unique interests.

The B.S. in Architecture is designed to lead directly into the BAC's accelerated Two-Year Master of Architecture.


Segment I: Foundation 

In Foundation, you’ll acquire beginning knowledge, abilities, and understanding in both professional and liberal studies education necessary for all undergraduates. For the first year, this is in a transdisciplinary setting.

Semester 1

Semester 2

Segment II: Integration 

Later, you’ll explore the depth and breadth of the field of architectural design with an emphasis on integrating skills, knowledge, and understanding. For this reason, courses are sometimes paired; for example, a student designing a building for studio will use it as a case study for a building technology class.

Degree Project

At the end of the program, you’ll draw upon your wealth of academic, professional, and extracurricular knowledge and tie it together through an in-depth architectural project. These projects are as individualistic as their makers because you have freedom to research your particular passions and bring them to a project of your own creation.
