• Overview
  • Design built environments. Improve lives.

    Accredited by the National Architecture Accrediting Board (NAAB), this program provides the professional training and credentials required to practice as a licensed architect.

    Sure, architects design buildings. But there’s much more to the profession than intricate drawings and hard hats.

    As a student in this professional-degree program, you will form a broad understanding of how architects solve complex problems to improve lives. You will gain experiences using the latest design techniques and modeling technologies, and study current topics in community planning, green-building design, environmental control, construction methods and more.

    Through design studio experiences, architecture students tackle real-world challenges in communities and urban neighborhoods around the world. The program includes international field trips and the option to study architecture in urban downtown Boise.

    Students who are pursuing the pre-professional B.S. Architecture may be able to transition seamlessly into the M. Arch. professional program during their senior year. This makes it possible to earn both the undergraduate degree and the master’s degree in less time.
