The Bachelor of Science in Architecture (BS Arch) is a five-year
baccalaureate degree program offered in the College of Architecture, Design and the Built Environment (CADBE, formerly the College of Architecture and Fine Arts). The program includes general education, technical courses
(mathematics, natural sciences, basic engineering sciences, professional,
allied and technical elective courses, architecture comprehensive course and
the non-academic courses â€“ PE and NSTP. The curricular structure of the BS
Architecture program aims to prepare the students for architecture licensing
and a professional career that essentially requires certain moral values,
communication aptitudes, dexterity, knowledge and skills that are necessary
for professional success. These objectives are achieved through progression
in the course work and in which scientific training in the lower years are
applied in the professional architectural courses in the upper years. All
students gain professional experience and hands-on training through required
internship, group projects, independent studio projects, required community
service and research undertaking.
The program therefore encourages the complementary pursuits of learning
and practice, reflection and action along with a sense of perspective,
adaptation, and transcendence. The skills that best serve these values
incorporate intuition, critical thinking, and problem solving, as well as
abilities with spoken, written, graphic, and spatial media. In a world of
continuous technological changes, which represent challenges that establish
cultures, these timeless values and skills endure. They exist as relevant
tools for contemporary life and practice, and as a means toward advancing
the cause of a humane and civilized environment for all.
