Our four-year undergraduate degree programs emphasize the development of both making and digital skills, in order to help you become a more creative thinker and designer. All architecture students take similar courses the first three years; however, courses during the fourth year will differ depending on your choice of program.

The Bachelor of Design in Architecture provides ultimate flexibility in your curriculum. During your senior year, you may choose to take additional architecture design studios, or you may pursue courses in other areas of interest. You will also complete a senior capstone project. 

The Bachelor of Design program prepares you to move on to a master's degree, putting you on track for teaching and leadership positions in architecture and other related fields.
