Architecture (Arizona State University)
To earn a BSD in architectural studies from Arizona State University, applicants must complete 120 credit hours of required coursework. Generally, these classes can be broken up into an eight-semester, four-year time frame. ASU requires students to complete these courses in sequential order to allow prerequisite studio work to build upon itself each semester. Architecture students become knowledgeable in subjects such as building design, science and technology applications, and building concepts such as aesthetics and sustainability.
Undergraduates who are accepted into The Design School program must pass a degree milestone to complete their first year of the program and continue on with their degree requirements. Students who pursue an emphasis in landscape architecture must also complete an internship during the course of their study.
Graduates who complete a BSD in architectural studies are prepared to work in Arizona under a registered architect or may continue their education in a graduate-level master’s degree program to become a licensed architect.
ASU's academic programs are spread across campuses in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area; however, unlike most multi-campus institutions, the campuses of ASU are all individually different- each has its own distinct function to fulfill in line with the university's mission.Read more About this school
