How to Select an Architecture School
Students interested in attending an architecture school in the U.S. may enroll in a professional bachelor's or a professional master's degree in architecture. Applicants without experience should seek a school with a Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch.). Applicants with a bachelor's in a field other than architecture or who have earned a non-professional bachelor's in architecture might look for an institution offering a professional Master in Architecture (M.Arch.).
- Find a program accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB).
- Consider the coursework and concentrations offered.
- Some schools offer hands-on experiences with professional architects already working in the field.
