All students are enrolled in the Architectural Studies track when declaring the B.S. Arch major. Before the final two semesters in the program, students must choose to either stay in the Architectural Studies track or opt-in to the Architectural Design track instead.
Prior to selecting a track, students should meet with an academic advisor to discuss the impact each track could have on their intended career path after graduation.

Each track has 27 credits of specified course work to complete the degree.
The Architectural Studies track allows more flexibility in course selection; the Architectural Design sub-plan is more structured.
Note: Additional general elective hours may be needed to reach the required 120 hours for the B.S. Arch degree.
Note: Required math and physics courses may apply toward general electives if not already applied toward core math or biological and physical sciences requirements.
