A five-year professional degree program, the Bachelor of Architecture (BArch) features a rigorous design-oriented curriculum with a solid foundation in technology and the history and theory of architecture. The Bachelor of Architecture degree is evaluated and accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board and contains the required academic coursework to pursue internship, and eventually, licensure. As such, the curriculum is designed to prepare students for the challenges and demands of professional practice.
A total of at least 161 hours of coursework is required for the Bachelor of Architecture. All students must complete the University's Core Curriculum in addition to degree-specific courses. In some cases, a course that is required for the BArch may also be counted toward the core curriculum.
The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture believes in the value of the design studio model. Studio learning encourages dialogue, collaboration, risk-taking, innovation, and learning-by-doing. The studio offers an environment where students can come together to ask questions and make proposals, which are developed and discussed among classmates, faculty, visiting professionals, and the public at large.
