Join Fall Open House Series Virtual Academic Unit Presentation feat. School of Architecture and Planning and learn about the undergraduate programs in UB's School of Architecture and Planning, how they are structured, what classes you would take and what careers are possible with your major.

Regsiter now for the School of Architecture and Planning presentation on Sunday, October 10, 2021 at 3:00 PM until 3:45 PM.

BS Arch students are educated in design, construction technologies, digital arts, the humanities, social sciences, and aesthetic expression. Goals of the BS Arch include introducing architecture as a profession and a way of understanding our natural and built environments.

It allows students to complete all prerequisites for eligibility to enter a two-year accredited professional master of architecture (MArch degree) program. The University at Buffalo is the only campus in the State University of New York system to offer the accredited professional master of architecture (MArch) degree. 

The pre-professional architecture degree, on its own, is useful for those who desire a foundation in the field of architecture as preparation for either continued education in an accredited professional Master of Architecture (MArch) degree program or employment options in architecture-related areas.

The four-year pre-professional bachelor of science in architecture, without the accredited first professional master of architecture degree, is not accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB). Read more about NAAB-accredited programs in the Department of Architecture.
