Bachelor of Architecture (BArch)

Accredited Degree

The Bachelor of Architecture (BArch) is an accredited, five-year professional degree providing the foundation for becoming a licensed architect as well as for continued study in a graduate program.

The degree is accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), which provides the basis to become a licensed, registered architect. A registration certificate indicates that one has completed architectural school, spent the minimum required time as an intern-architect, and then passed a comprehensive examination designed to measure professional judgment and ability. Because architects directly affect the public health, safety and welfare, registration is an assurance that an individual can practice the profession responsibly.

Our degree provides the starting point for this pathway and it does so within five years — the least time possible.
