A bachelor’s degree is one of the most popular college degrees available, and millions of students around the world are choosing to pursue one. One popular type of degree focuses on the study of architecture—but what is a Bachelor in Architecture?

A BA degree in architecture studies allows students to study the design, planning, and construction of buildings. Architecture is one of the oldest and most-well known fields of study because it involves constructing buildings that can last for decades, centuries, or millennia. Those who pursue this degree might study design, aesthetics, and art, as well as more practical areas such as physics, building mechanics, plumbing and electrical systems, and the construction process. Students may also take courses on drawing, drafting, and computer aided design.

Those who take a Bachelor in Architecture will be able to thoroughly prepare themselves for a career in building design. In many countries, the BA in architecture studies degree is designed to prepare students to take architecture tests and receive official accreditation in whatever place they choose to seek employment. 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.

Those who decide to take a BA in architecture studies will most likely end up pursuing a career as an independent architect or a member of an architectural firm. They are also equipped for many jobs within the fields of construction, planning, or design.
