Continuing Education at the BAC

The Boston Architectural College (BAC) is a fully accredited nonprofit college that has been educating architects and designers for more than 125 years. In addition to traditional degree programs, the BAC also offers an enriching Continuing Education (CE) program with a variety of individual courses, as well as certificate programs. Students have the opportunity to grow their knowledge, expand their professional profiles, and develop new skills.

The BAC’s continuing education community is comprised of individuals diverse in age, occupation and experience, enriching each class with fresh perspectives. Practicing design professionals enhance their skills or earn required Continuing Education credits; certificate students prepare to start a first, or recently discovered career, and design enthusiasts take individual courses for pleasure.

Whether onsite or online, every CE course provides an opportunity to learn from practicing professionals who are leaders in their fields. Students taking onsite classes benefit from our evening and daytime offerings, our vibrant, urban location, and our proximity to local design firms, galleries, upscale interior showrooms, and more. For students participating in online classes and programs, our instructor-led courses generate ongoing academic conversations.
