Bachelor of Architecture
The FAU School of architecture offers the five year, first professional degree, the Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch.) which is accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB). The School is an institution of shared learning, an operative organization within the ”laboratory” of the City of Fort Lauderdale, South Florida, and the Florida-Caribbean and Latin American regions. Through projects and programs that are interdisciplinary and internationally relevant, students and faculty actively learn with communities, allied professionals, artists, builders, developers, manufacturers, and governmental agencies.
The School of Architecture prepares students for the profession of architecture by developing an understanding of design as an interpretive process, where students will acquire a broadened capacity to recognize societal responsibilities and exercise ethical judgment in improving the quality of our physical environment, and with it, our quality of life.
