College of Architecture and Planning


The College of Architecture and Planning has a new Bachelor of Science in Architecture degree program. This four-year pre-professional program prepares graduates to enter accredited professional Master of Architecture (MArch) programs across the country as well as other graduate programs in disciplines such as landscape architecture, interior architecture, planning, historic preservation and urban design. With a BSArch degree, you may also consider careers in construction and real estate as a project manager, marketer, estimator, inspector, appraiser, developer or facilities manager. 

Students who complete this BSArch degree and enroll in the MArch program will be able to complete the MArch degree in two years, whereas individuals who hold other undergraduate degrees may take up to 3½ years to complete the MArch program. 

Architecture education combines critical thinking with active making. Students learn the fundamentals of design (organization, structure and systems); how to apply them to the design of buildings, neighborhoods and cities; and how to graphically communicate a design solution. Students in our BSArch program benefit from close contact with graduate students and architects and other design, construction and real estate professionals with practices in downtown Denver and the Metro Region.
