Overview

The Bachelor of Architecture is a professional program at Alfred State College SUNY College of Technology, which endeavors to prepare students for licensure shortly after graduation, reducing the need for further graduate education or an advanced degree.

Elective courses may be taken in other departments at Alfred State and students may also cross-register for courses at Alfred University.

The BArch program provides a career-focused, project-based education integrating theory and practice with a strong multidisciplinary foundation that draws upon an institutional heritage of building and technology.

Career

A wide range of activities are open to graduates of this accredited degree: intern architect, practicing architect (after successfully meeting state registration requirements), or practitioner in related sub-fields that include: sustainable architecture, urban design, interior architecture, adaptive reuse and historic preservation, building construction management, hospitality design, lighting design, acoustical design, religious building design, and others.
