Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies

The four-year Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies degree program combines architecture with arts and sciences. Students transferring from other disciplines may find that more of their coursework is applicable toward this degree than toward the Bachelor of Architecture.

Applicants for admission to this program must fulfill the requirements for admission to the School of Architecture.

The Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies alone does not fulfill the educational requirements for registration as an architect. Students interested in earning the Master of Architecture as a professional degree in addition to the Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies, requiring a minimum of six years of study in total, should consult the associate dean for undergraduate programs.

Bachelor of Science in Interior Design

The first year of this degree program is designed to give the student conceptual knowledge and skills, especially in critical thinking. The second year is intended to lay a foundation of knowledge in design, history, structure, technology, and environmental controls, on which the student builds in the third year. The final year emphasizes synthesis, specialization, and the challenge of creating interiors that improve the quality of life.

Courses used to fulfill the writing requirement may also be counted toward other requirements for the degree.

Practical fieldwork. Between the third and fourth years of the program, each student must complete a summer internship of at least 126 hours with an interior design firm. This requirement is designed to provide the student with firsthand knowledge of various aspects of interior design practice and with the opportunity to develop and refine both design abilities and business skills. Placement assistance is provided by the office of the associate dean for undergraduate programs. No course credit is awarded for the internship.
