Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs (alphabetical)

This degree program is for students wishing to transfer to Bachelor of Architecture schools at accredited colleges or universities. The program provides the equivalent number and type of courses generally required in the first two years of study within a five-year curriculum. Completion of a five-year curriculum is a requirement for licensing as a professional architect. An architectural education embodies the study of both art and engineering disciplines. The program’s goal is to develop creative and analytical skills in both of these areas.

Graduates of this program will be able to:

  • Analyze how the history of architecture influences current design
  • Discuss what non-design factors influence building design
  • Explain the technical requirements of building and construction
  • Demonstrate the ability to organize a building program into building space from functional and aesthetic perspectives
  • Develop three-dimensional utilization abilities through abstract design exercises
