The School of Architecture offers a four-year preprofessional curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies (BSAS) degree as well as a minor in Architectural Studies. The BS in Architectural Studies degree provides an undergraduate academic education in architecture that can serve as a foundation for advanced professional education. The undergraduate curriculum offers an appropriate balance of basic professional studies in architectural design, architectural history, practice and technology, structures, and studies in the arts and sciences.

The following statement is from the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB):

"In the United States, most state registration boards require a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a prerequisite for licensure. The National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), which is the sole agency authorized to accredit U.S. professional degree programs in architecture, recognizes three types of degrees: the Bachelor of Architecture, the Master of Architecture, and the Doctor of Architecture. A program may be granted a eight-year, three-year, or two-year term of accreditation, depending on the extent of its conformance with established educational standards.

Doctor of Architecture and Master of Architecture degree programs may require a preprofessional undergraduate degree in architecture for admission. However, the preprofessional degree is not, by itself, recognized as an accredited degree.”

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, College of Fine and Applied Arts, School of Architecture offers the following NAAB-accredited degree programs:

Master of Architecture (Pre-professional undergraduate degrees + 62 graduate credits)
Master of Architecture (Undergraduate degree + 65 prerequisite credit hours + 54 graduate credits)

Next accreditation visit for all programs: 2023

The NAAB Conditions for Accreditation (including Student Performance Criteria) may be found on the NAAB Web site.

Since 1967, the School of Architecture operates a full academic-year study abroad program in Barcelona, Spain, which is open to qualified students on a priority basis. Course offerings parallel those available to students on the Urbana-Champaign campus but stress the European context.

The School of Architecture occupies design studios, lecture rooms, and offices in the Architecture Building, Architecture Annex, and Temple Hoyne Buell Hall. The Ricker Library of Architecture and Art is located in the Architecture Building.

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies

In this curriculum, normal progress is imperative. A student failing to complete any required course more than one semester later than the time designated in the curriculum is prohibited from progressive registration in architectural courses until the deficiency is corrected. To continue at the sophomore level and beyond, a student must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.00 (A = 4.0) for all University course work attempted. For the Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies degree, a total of 127 semester hours are required.

See current University of Illinois General Education requirements.

The General Education quantitative reasoning requirement I is satisfied by the required MATH 220 or MATH 221 course; the quantitative reasoning II requirement is satisfied by the MATH 231 or PHYS 101 course. Students considering a concentration in Building Structures or Structural Engineering should take MATH 231. The Advanced Composition requirement may be fulfilled by either a separate, approved Advanced Composition course or by an Advanced Composition course which also satisfies one of the general education distribution list requirements. If by the latter, electives would be taken to make up the credit deficiency.

General Education foreign language requirement 0-12 hours: Students entering the University of Illinois as freshmen in fall 2000 or later need to complete the foreign language requirement in order to graduate. To satisfy this requirement, students must complete a third semester level college foreign language course. This requirement may also be satisfied by three years of the same foreign language in high school. Students entering the University of Illinois without three years of the same foreign language in high school must take a foreign language placement test to determine the courses in which to enroll.

2

The Composition I requirement may be fulfilled by any of the following courses or course sequences (placement is determined by examination): ESL 111 and ESL 112; ESL 115, RHET 100, RHET 101, and RHET 102; or RHET 105; or CMN 111 and CMN 112.
