Bachelor degrees typically take between three to six years to complete. The coursework may sometimes be taken in conjunction with other degrees, enabling students to earn dual certifications in less time.

What is a Bachelor in Architecture Studies? Through intensive surveys of mathematics, physics, and architectural design, students in these degree programs learn how to craft, research, and modify different components of the architectural world. Technology is heavily emphasized and students may spend significant portions of their degree programs learning how to navigate and create representational models of their designs using industry-standard graphic software. In addition to contemporary architecture, students typically study historical practices and styles from different corners of the world while developing their own architectural techniques and vision.

Architectural studies can imbue learners with superior analytical abilities, structural knowledge as it relates to architecture, and software-specific training with computer-aided design programs. These skills put graduates at the front lines of career opportunities and may lead to faster professional advancement.

Various costs, such as that of tuition and laboratory fees, may change frequently and vary between institutions. Students are encouraged to contact their desired universities planning offices for budget information and guidance.

Potential jobs for students with a Bachelor in Architecture Studies are available in a wide swath of industries where construction and expansion are constant. With their technical training and intense studies, graduates of this degree can qualify for positions as internship-level architects, project managers, architectural designers, and CAD specialists. Students may work at engineering and architectural firms or as freelancers, or find opportunities within larger organizations seeking to expand their business to new territories.  Most regions require additional certifications to work directly as architects, but students with this degree can often complete those certifications with an additional one to two years of study.

Some online programs can enable students to complete all or significant portions of their Bachelor in Architecture Studies from the comforts of their own home. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

A dynamic, innovative and practical at the same time, a programme is implemented through Studio method – study courses are integrated into a single complex task: students learn architecture-related principles of drawing, composition, physics, materials strengths, etc. and apply directly in the project they are working on. Another exclusivity of the programme lays in the historical, cultural, theoretical and philosophical critical analysis of existing typologies, associated with the design of aesthetic prototyping which integrates constructions, mechanical, ecological and economic research.This extended undergraduate programme leads to the master’s degree (5 years programme).
