List of Colleges that Offer Architecture Degrees and Majors

When selecting an architecture school in the U.S., students may consider the type of hands-on experience available, the type of coursework offered and the types of degree programs offered with an eye toward meeting state licensure requirements.

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.).

Further considerations:

  • 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.
