Bachelors in Arts in Massachusetts in USA. 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. [-]

Wheaton is excited to announce its new interdisciplinary program in Film & New Media Studies. FNMS introduces students to the theoretical, historical, aesthetic, global and technological dimensions of cinema and digital media. Such media inform not only how we understand and value representation, but how we understand and value the ideas, peoples, places and cultures that we see represented.

So too does the need to identify, study and responsibly contribute to that impact. The Film and New Media Studies major is designed to be at once intellectually cohesive yet highly flexible. Multiple pathways through the major ensure that in addition to developing competencies in core areas, students can, in consultation with their academic advisor, plan a program of study that will help them identify and achieve their goals both while at Wheaton and in their post-graduation pursuits. Designed in the liberal arts tradition and for the 21st century, Wheaton’s Film & New Media Studies program emphasizes... Developing skills, knowledge and literacies that will help achieve academic 
and professional success; Understanding the past, participating in the present and preparing for the future; Critical thinking, computational thinking and creative innovation; The integration of curricular and co-curricular learning experiences; Project- and participation-based learning; Thoughtful engagement with a diverse range of views, cultures, traditions and people; Opportunities to study abroad and to participate in summer internship. Major requirements The major consists of 11 courses, a senior seminar, 4 core courses and at least 2 eligible 300-level courses1. There are multiple pathways through the Film and New Media Studies major. Students are strongly encouraged to work with the Film and New Media Studies advisor to plan out the most suitable program of study for them based on individual interests and learning goals. [-]
