Architecture Program

As a SCAD architecture student, you'll learn the environmental, social, and sustainability issues that affect how structures are mapped out. You'll apply historical, cultural, topographical, theoretical, and aesthetic factors to concept skyscrapers, museums, mixed-use developments, and more on real-world sites. Using top-of-the-line and emerging resources like augmented and virtual reality, you'll develop the technical expertise — and the portfolio — necessary to raise buildings that add beauty and color to the world.

SCAD offers a pre-professional B.F.A. degree in architecture and a professional M.Arch. degree, which is accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board. The SCAD M.Arch. program was awarded the maximum eight-year term of accreditation by NAAB, whose meticulous accreditation standards are accepted and often required by state registration boards.

SCAD offers the Integrated Path to Architectural Licensure in partnership with the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards. This progressive academic track provides accepted students the professional advantage of combining work experience with coursework and examinations, and prepares students for professional architectural licensure in as few as seven years.
