Architecture is the art and science of designing physical structures and the spaces around them. Architecture requires graphic and visual skills, technical aptitude in mathematics and science, verbal skills, organizational skills, memory, and compositional talent.

Things to Consider

Creative and timely problem-solving are a hallmark of the architectural process, making it one of the most analytical of the arts disciplines. Architects are required to be licensed in every state, and there is usually an internship/apprenticeship period following education, prior to a licensing exam.

Students considering these fields are encouraged to reach out to their faculty and alumni to develop professional relationships and contacts. Portfolios are fundamental for demonstrating previous experience and should be adaptable to fit changing career narratives, as well as capable of demonstrating the process as well as the product.
