A BA will prepare students for the accreditation process, as well as give them experience needed for a future career and provide them with an advantage when seeking employment.

The cost of a bachelor’s degree in architecture can vary greatly from program to program, school to school, and even country to country. That’s why it’s vital that potential students carefully research the institutions that they are most interested in.
