The Associate of Arts degree is a 69-hour, two-year program of study designed for students who have an interest in architecture.

The curriculum is designed for those interested in how technical and aesthetic aspects of architectural design affect a diversity of populations in a variety of contexts. The foundational curriculum prepares students with essential architectural design problem solving techniques and skills.
