Your degree is the first step to becoming an architect. You also will need to get professional experience, pass an exam and be licensed by your state in order to work as an architect. When you enter your fourth year of study in the School of Architecture, you complete an Intern Development Program application. This program, regulated by The National Counsel of Architecture Regional Board, helps ensure you get the experience you need to take the exam.
Graduates of the architecture program work in individual practice, and as collaborators, consultants and members of larger teams. From the west coast to the northeast and beyond, our alumni have gone on to successful careers as architects with a wide range of specialties.
You will have an opportunity to build your portfolio, your resume and other job application materials during the program. The school’s annual Career Day gives you the opportunity to meet and network with firms face to face. Our faculty and alumni have strong networks with architectural and design firms. Career Services assists students with the challenge of finding a solid career path and a job after graduation.
