Bachelor of Architecture Dual Degree Programs

Bachelor of Architecture and Bachelor of Science in Architectural Engineering

Students may elect to enter a six-year dual degree program offered jointly by the School of Architecture and the Department of Civil Engineering in the College of Engineering. The dual degree program combines the areas of common interest in the two programs and allows the student to pursue the two degrees simultaneously.

For admission to the dual degree program, a student must meet the admission requirements of the School of Architecture given in this chapter and the requirements for admission to a major sequence in the College of Engineering given in chapter 6. Students are advised to contact both the School of Architecture and the College of Engineering for specific information about the dual degree program.

Students in the dual degree program complete the requirements of the Bachelor of Architecture and the Bachelor of Science in Architectural Engineering degrees. A description of the five-year Bachelor of Architecture program is given in this chapter; a description of the Bachelor of Science in Architectural Engineering is given in chapter 6.

The following outline of courses is the suggested method for completing the requirements for both degrees simultaneously. Dual degree students must also consult chapter 6 for additional requirements of the Bachelor of Science in Architectural Engineering degree. Dual degree students are responsible for fulfilling the requirements of both degrees.

A student who follows the sequence of courses below completes all requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Architectural Engineering at the end of the fall semester of the sixth year and completes the requirements for the Bachelor of Architecture at the end of the spring semester of the sixth year.

Bachelor of Architecture and Bachelor of Arts, Plan II

A limited number of students whose high school class standing and SAT I or ACT scores indicate strong academic potential and motivation may pursue the Bachelor of Architecture and the Bachelor of Arts, Plan II, simultaneously.

This dual degree option, offered jointly by the School of Architecture and the Plan II Honors Program of the College of Liberal Arts, gives students the flexibility they need to take challenging liberal arts courses while pursuing a professional degree in architecture. Admission to both the School of Architecture and the Plan II Honors Program is required.

Students interested in this program should consult the more detailed description of the Plan II program, including its separate and early application for admission.

The following outline of courses is a suggested method to complete the requirements for both degrees simultaneously. Students should consult advisers and both this chapter and chapter 9 of this catalog to ensure that their degree programs fulfill all requirements of both degrees.
