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.

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.

Bachelors in Architecture in North America 2017. 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. The bachelor of interior architecture... [-]

As a profession it plays a pivotal role in the production of the built environment, bridging the technical and social, practical and theoretical.
