The Bachelor of Science in Architecture (B.S. Arch) offers a rigorous and distinguished architectural education profile for our students around technology in all areas – design, history, theory, and communication. Our undergraduate degree program offers flexibility in the design studio sequence to allow coordinated interdisciplinary work with other schools at Georgia Tech. We build our academic foundation on studio classes, history of theory and a deliberate blend of technology and design. We offer incubator workshops to all our students, from Freshmen through Seniors, which allow them to follow their intellectual passions and hone in-demand skills. The experimentation in our classes reflects the evolution happening now in professional Architecture.
The Bachelor of Science in Architecture program prepares students for graduate-level studies in architecture, for graduate study in related fields, or a variety of careers related to architecture, the building industry, or government service.
