The purpose of the one-year pre-professional program is to provide preparatory educational experiences for those seeking to apply for admission to another University for the completion of a professionally accredited degree in architecture, interior architecture or landscape architecture. The coursework provides an important opportunity for students to explore their interests and level of commitment before applying to an architecture school (but doesn’t guarantee that all the courses will transfer).

The courses are met as a foundation for students interested in an architecture program.  Students will need to work closely with the school in which they plan to transfer to ensure optimal transferability of coursework. Students who decide not to transfer could apply some courses from the pre-architecture curriculum to the major Technology Management - Construction Management and Design option.
