Introduction to available degrees

The Fay Jones School of Architecture offers two major degree paths for students: professional degrees and multidisciplinary degrees.

Five-year professional degrees: The bachelor of architecture and bachelor of landscape architecture degrees prepare students for professional design careers. While architects may design furniture, homes, museums, hospitals or libraries, landscape architects might design residential communities, theme parks, campuses, gardens and plazas. Both architects and landscape architects may engage in large-scale planning.

Four-year professional degree: The bachelor of interior design prepares students for professional design careers. Interior designers create a broad scale of projects, including products, residences, and retail, hospital, medical and corporate spaces.

Four-year multidisciplinary degrees: The architectural and landscape architectural studies degrees could lead to careers in journalism, planning agencies and non-profit organizations. Graduates also may continue their education in the fields of business, history, urban planning, and historic preservation.

Many students pursue minors by focusing their professional and free electives in an area of personal interest. Recent graduates have received minors in business, horticulture, geography, art, English literature and Latin American studies.
