What is the difference between Architectural Studies B.A. and a B.Arch. degree offered by an Architectural School?
Our Architectural Studies B.A. is a liberal arts degree rather than a specialized professional degree. It provides rigorous study in architectural history and design within the context of a rich array of liberal arts courses in fields that will enhance your ability to practice architecture in today's world, and, should you choose it, prepares you for master's level studies in a variety of design professions. The combination of a liberal arts B.A. with a professional Master's of Architecture degree is an increasingly popular one in the profession, as it provides critically important exposure to the global societal and cultural context within which architects practice.
