Design studios at each level immerse students in design culture, helping them develop the skills and intellectual tools to solve problems. Ten terms of design are required, and it is the focal point of every semester. Studio exercises vary significantly during the five years. Basic conceptual skills are emphasized early on, along with introducing the elements of architecture. Students will learn to communicate ideas through models and graphics. Additional courses in history and drawing help lay the foundation for the rest of your education.
Note on Professional Accreditation
Doctor of architecture and master of architecture degree programs may consist of a pre-professional undergraduate degree and a professional graduate degree that, when earned sequentially, constitute an accredited professional education. However, the pre-professional degree is not, by itself, recognized as an accredited degree.
AAP offers two NAAB-accredited degrees: the Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch.),176 undergraduate credits and the Master of Architecture, professional (M.Arch.1), 114 graduate credits.
Next accreditation visit for the B.Arch.: 2016
