Online Architecture Degree

The School of Architecture offers accredited undergraduate and graduate online architecture degree programs taught by practicing architects. Our online classes are designed to teach the full creative spectrum of designing and making—from initial idea to the technical complexities of contemporary building construction. As a student, you have the opportunity to learn about all aspects of architecture through our online system.

Our program offers accredited undergraduate and graduate online degrees taught by experienced professionals. Additionally, students have the opportunity to learn from architects, artists, engineers, and construction professionals through the online system. The online architecture program balances the intellectual, artistic, and technical abilities necessary for professional practice.

Students are encouraged to engage both theory and practice, achieving a balance between conceptual thinking and practical problem solving. A holistic understanding of basic design principles, history, theory, and technology is emphasized under the direction of a faculty of professional architects.

Design studio critiques are critical to the success of any prospective architect. For our online students, we keep this tradition by using web conferencing to interact with you. We also bring online guest reviewers and critics to participate in the design process. Communication and collaboration between students and instructors are key features in making the online educational process an engaging and exciting process.
