Bachelor of Science In Architectural Studies (B.S.Arch.)

Program Description
The Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies (B.S.Arch.) degree is a four-year pre-professional program that offers a broad-based education in the fundamentals of architecture. It is divided into pre-architecture (years one and two--lower division) and architecture (years three and four--upper division). Students may be admitted as freshmen or as transfer students. 

Qualified B.S.Arch. graduates are eligible for admission into one of the professional architecture programs (B.Arch. or M.Arch.) offered at Florida A & M and throughout the country. Or they may choose to enter the building industry as employees of architects or a variety of other fields such as urban design, environmental law, or real estate development.
The B.S.Arch. curriculum includes requirements in mathematics, physics, social sciences, and humanities. Course sequences in architecture include architectural design, history and theory, structures, environmental technology, and materials and methods of construction. 

Application and Admission Requirements
The B.S.Arch. is a limited-access program that consists of two years in the pre-architecture program and two years in the upper division. Students may be admitted into any level of the curriculum, depending upon their background. Each student's background is evaluated, and curriculum requirements are tailored to the individual situation.
In addition to the university requirements for admission, a freshman who wishes to be considered as an architecture major must have achieved a minimum GPA of 2.50 in academic course work and 1010 on SAT1 or 21 on the E/ACT. Applicants with lower scores may be considered on a space-available basis. The university admits qualified applicants to the pre-architecture program of the B.S.Arch. program.

All students benefit from the experience of a personal academic advisor with whom they work throughout their stay at the School of Architecture. This advisor assists the student with course choices as well as other academic issues that may arise. Applicants are encouraged to contact the School to obtain an assessment of their status.
