The bachelor of architecture degree is awarded upon the completion of the five-year curriculum. Qualified students may elect to pursue concurrently a second bachelor of interior architecture degree. In the United States, most state registration boards require a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a pre-requisite for licensure. The National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), which is the sole agency authorized to accredit U.S. professional degree programs in architecture, recognizes three types of degrees: the Bachelor of Architecture, the Master of Architecture, and the Doctor of Architecture. A program may be granted a six, three or two-year term of accreditation, depending on its degree of conformance with established educational standards. Doctor of Architecture and Master of Architecture degree programs may consist of a pre-professional undergraduate degree and a professional graduate degree, that when earned sequentially, constitute an accredited professional education. However, the pre- professional degree is not, by itself, recognized as an accredited degree. Auburn's next accreditation visit for the architecture program is in 2017. Auburn University, School of Architecture, Planning, and Landscape Architecture offers the following NAAB-accredited degree program: Bachelor of Architecture (159 credits). The four-year pre-professional Bachelor of Science in Environmental Design is not a professionally accredited degree. Auburn University is a member of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture. Students are encouraged to work at an architect’s office, on a construction site or in another approved professional endeavor prior to their fourth year.

Honours Bachelor of Arts in Architectural Studies Architecture is both a profession and a discipline of study, relating to a broad spectrum of career opportunities. As a profession it plays a pivotal role in the production of the built environment, bridging the technical and social, practical and theoretical. It is a cultural and artistic practice that is critically engaged with the forces of urbanization and technological change, the challenges of environmental sustainability, and the struggle for cultural expression. It involves the design, production, and organization of material culture from the scale of domestic objects to the scale of the metropolitan region. As such, studies in architecture interact with numerous related disciplines in the social sciences and humanities, as well as engineering, technology, and media. These studies may lead to professional graduate programs in architecture, landscape architecture, planning and urban design, as well as careers in related design disciplines, the arts, history, business, journalism, and public policy. Honours Bachelor of Arts, Architectural Studies: Two Honours Bachelor of Arts majors in architectural studies are offered by the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design in collaboration with the Faculty of Arts and Science.

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... [-]

La mayoría de las actividades del ser humano se desarrollan en un entorno construido. A través de la Arquitectura se ha dado respuesta a las necesidades de espacio que las sociedades han requerido, las cuales con el paso del tiempo, han visto aumentar su complejidad y problemática. En los inicios de este siglo XXI, el entorno construido en todo el mundo y en especial en México enfrenta problemas que ponen en riesgo el ambiente natural y la vida en comunidad. La mayoría de las ciudades mexicanas presentan retos importantes debido al deterioro ecológico, la segregación social, el crecimiento desordenado y la falta de empleos dignos y bien remunerados. En la solución a estos problemas, los arquitectos pueden desempeñar un rol decisivo, pues son clave en la preservación del medio ambiente y en la recuperación de la calidad del entorno construido, aprovechando la oportunidad histórica de convertirse en líderes en el mejoramiento de sus comunidades.
