Architecture The B.A. in Architectural Studies is designed to serve as a platform or foundational degree for students who plan to specialize in architecture and other disciplines that focus on the design, planning and construction of the built environment. It exposes students to ideas and practices currently followed in all of the School’s design disciplines and it focuses on many of the business, communications and organizational skills that are not covered in the technical requirements of the graduate curricula. Students at KU who start in the B.A. in Architectural Studies, co-enroll in graduate professional degrees and take courses that count toward the B.A. and the graduate professional degree. All B.A. students take a core of classes in architecture, design and planning. The core involves a sequence of skill-based studios, survey courses within each of the School’s disciplines, and courses in architectural history and theory. This degree core is supplemented with classes that fulfill the Core Curriculum, additional courses that meet the requirements of any one of the Undergraduate Certificate Programs, and advanced professional enrichment courses that fulfill requirements in the graduate professional degrees. From the very beginning, each student works with an advisor to make sure that appropriate progress is being made both toward the completion of the B.A. degree and, if designated, the graduate professional degree. Some students may opt to complete the 124-credit B.A. without continuing and completing the additional year (or two) required to finish one of the professional degree paths. The four-year, 124-credit course of study that leads to a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Architectural Studies prepares students for graduate education in many other fields such as law, business, government, facility management, and public administration that are enhanced by a broad knowledge of architecture. It also prepares them for work in a number of fields related to architecture. Most of these fields of specialization extend beyond the traditional realms of formal architectural design, building technology and construction. Architectural specializations have emerged in space planning, acoustics, lighting, historic preservation, energy conservation, land use planning, urban design, computer application, environmental impact assessment, life safety regulation, and post-construction evaluation. New specializations continue to appear because of new social needs and improved technologies. B.A. Architectural Studies graduates have used different concentrations of professional enrichment courses to find employment in a broad range of fields in both the public and private sectors. Within the federal and state governments, B.A. graduates have gone to work in facility management, space planning, historic preservation consulting and other offices that deal with the public building stock. At the local and municipal level, they have found employment in economic development agencies, heritage and community centers, and similar public organizations that promote improvement, preservation or modification of the built environment. Some have also gone to work in not-for-profit and development agencies and private-public and federally-funded organizations that promote community economic growth and development involving extensive planning, survey work, housing analyses, community organization, and other “grass roots” tasks. Within the private sector, B.A. graduates have combined their training in architecture with course work in communications, project management and organizational behavior to land jobs in facility management, property management, building materials supply and sales, architectural services marketing, and historic preservation surveying, research and consulting. Students who complete the B.A. and later wish to become licensed architects may pursue a professionally accredited Master of Architecture degree. [-]

Bachelor of Architecture

SCI-Arc
Campus Full time 5 years September 2017 USA Los Angeles

SCI-Arc’s B.Arch program is a five-year Bachelor of Architecture professional degree program, emphasizing design excellence and intellectual breadth through a liberal arts education. The program is focused on the discipline of architecture in terms of its history, theory, and techniques, and on the practice of architecture in terms of building technologies, innovative means of construction, and professional practice. The program’s core is the design studio, where students build visual literacy, learn design skills, test ideas, and receive continuous, personal feedback on their work from faculty. The studio faculty is made up of practicing architects rather than pure academics, which allows students a window into the real life of an architect as well as options for pursuing professional internships outside of school. Over four years of core design studio, students build a robust set of techniques and sensibilities for making and appreciating architecture. In their fifth year they produce a thesis project, which takes a position in relation to contemporary architectural discourse and includes a highly developed presentation. The B.Arch program includes a range of coursework in the arts and humanities, including art, art history, literature, new models of understanding nature, sociology, the history of civilization, philosophy, rhetoric and debate, film, and computation. Included in the curriculum is a series of master classes taught by international figures in their respective areas of expertise. Graduates leave the program with a portfolio of sophisticated work, prepared to either enter professional practice or continue on to higher education in the world’s most competitive graduate programs. The B.Arch program is accredited by NAAB (the National Architectural Accrediting Board). [-]
