Architecture Education (test)

In the United States, you should pursue a degree from an architecture program which is accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) [] in order to meet the educational requirements to become a licensed architect

More than 125 architecture programs are accredited by the NAAB [] in the United States. NAAB accredits professional programs in architecture leading to the Doctor of Architecture, Master of Architecture or Bachelor of Architecture degree.  Students may graduate from either a pre-professional architecture degree or undergraduate degree in another discipline and then complete an accredited Master of Architecture program.

The NAAB is the sole agency authorized to accredit U.S. degree programs in architecture. The listing of accredited programs is available on the NAAB website [].

The Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture offers StudyArchitecture, [] an online database of all institutions that offer architecture programs in the United States and Canada. This service allows you to search by location, degree program, area of interest, and tuition range.
