This degree trains students in the means, methods, and cultural significance of the built environment in a project-based, problem-enhanced curriculum. Architecture blends science, technology, engineering, art, and math in the creation and operation of the facilities that support and enrich society.

Architectural studies strengthen interpersonal communication and public speaking skills; develop critical thinking and collaborative skills; and give a solid background in interdisciplinary arts, social awareness, and appreciation of diverse cultures.

Students who successfully complete this degree can go directly into the architecture engineering and construction industry workforce. This degree also provides a strong technical foundation for students who choose to go on to a baccalaureate institution to major in architecture, engineering, construction, or related humanities or education fields.
