Requirements, Advancement & Earnings
There are three types of professional degrees in architecture offered through colleges and universities:
  • 5-year Bachelor of Architecture programs intended for students entering programs from high school or with no previous architectural training
  • 2-year Master of Architecture programs for students with a preprofessional undergraduate degree in architecture or a related area
  • 3 or 4-year Master of Architecture programs offered to students with degrees in other disciplines

    Learn more here on our article on Admissions.
In the United States those who want to provide architectural services must be licensed. To become licensed one must earn a professional degree in architecture, complete a period of practical training or internship, and pass all divisions of the ARE (Architect Registration Examination). In most states, continuing education is required to maintain licensure.

Generally, the professional degree in architecture must be from a school of architecture accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB). A few states don't have this requirement.

Advancement of Architects:
A licensed architect, after gaining experience, may take on increasingly responsible duties and eventual managing entire projects. Architects may advance to supervisory or managerial positions in large firms. Some become partners in established firms while others set up their own practices.
How Much Do Architects Earn?:
Median annual earnings of wage and salary architects were $72,700 in 2009. Recent graduates working on internships will earn much less. Those starting out in private practices will go through a period of time when they are operating at a loss.
