Bachelor of Architecture

SCI-Arc’s B.Arch program is a five-year Bachelor of Architecture professional degree program, emphasizing design excellence and intellectual breadth through a liberal arts education.

The B.Arch program admits approximately seventy students per year. Students may apply directly from high school or transfer from two- or four-year colleges. Applications for first-year placement are accepted for the fall term only; applications for advanced placement are accepted for the fall and spring terms. Admission to the undergraduate program is selective, and applicants must generally have a GPA of 3.0 or higher in addition to a distinctive portfolio of work.

Students who have completed general, non-architecture courses at other two- or four-year colleges may only apply for placement in the first year of the B.Arch program. These include students who have completed associate degrees (A.A. or A.S.) in disciplines other than architecture.

Students who are in the process of completing or who have already completed previous architectural design studios are eligible to apply for advanced placement in the B.Arch program. Admission is based on the applicant’s personal statement, creative portfolio, academic record, letters of recommendation, resume, and test scores (if applicable).
