For Students with Pre-Professional Degrees
in Architecture

Requirements for the degree will be contingent on the evaluation of the student’s prior work. Professional courses (equivalent to ARC 530, 531, 532, 533, 562, 563, 567, 568) completed in a pre-professional bachelor’s degree program will be evaluated to identify courses that may be waived. A maximum of 45 credits, with a grade of “B“ or higher, will be considered for waivers. It is required to submit a dossier (syllabus, assignments submitted and tests, etc.) for each course to be considered for waiver. A maximum of 3 architectural electives (totaling 9 credits) may be waived, contingent upon the minimum of 60 overall credits being maintained.

The School requires the completion of one elective in Architectural History (3 credits) in the program. Students with 8 Design Studios completed within a pre-professional bachelor’s degree program will be required to take 24 Design Studio credits as indicated below. Students with less than 8 Design Studios completed within a pre-professional bachelor’s degree program will be required to take an additional 6 Design Studio credits during the Summer. Students who elect to take an additional Design Studio in the Summer (Rome, Open City, or Miami) will be allowed to do so and receive 6 elective credits.
