    Architecture, B.ARCH

    Program Information:

    The Bachelor of Architecture Program is centered on the ten-semester studio sequence that proceeds from the basic fundamentals of design and architecture, through the technical aspects of building and comprehensive design, to investigations of the urban condition. It culminates in the fifth year’s exploration of architecture as a form of design research. Reinforcing the studios are sequences in design communication, architecture culture, structure, environmental technology and professional practice. Collectively, they provide the more holistic understanding of the design process necessary for the production of functional and meaningful architecture. 

    This is a suggested 5-year schedule of courses based on the Architecture degree requirements and course prerequisites in the Fall 2017 Undergraduate Catalog. (If course prerequisites change, you must meet the prerequisites in effect when you take the course, so always check the current Catalog for course prerequisites.) 

    The Architecture Program begins in the Fall of each academic year. (Term 1 = Fall, Term 2 = Spring)

    Milestones/Notes:

    1. The Department of Architecture recommends students take STS 2105 to satisfy Area B-1 and Comm 1100 to satisfy Area B-2.
    2. ARCH 3313 ETech II & ARCH 3211 Structures II should be taken concurrently with ARCH 3011 Studio.
    3. ARCH 3314 ETech III & ARCH 3212 Structures III should be taken concurrently with ARCH 3012 Studio.
    4. All courses must be passed with a letter grade of ‘C’ or higher to be counted toward graduation and to fulfill prerequisite requirements.
    5. All Students should follow the Course Flow Chart as closely as possible. Students who fall out of sequence are encouraged to take courses in the summer to get back on track.
    6. The  Course Flow Chart has 17 credits appointed to Elective/Minor. Students may elect to use these credits for free electives or take a minor in another field. Should the minor be less then the allotted 17 credits the student should apply the extra credit toward a free elective. 
    7. Architectural Portfolio Review, minimum 2.5 GPA required in the general education courses, including PHYS and MATH, and the ARCH core courses prior to entry into third-year Professional ARCH program.
    8. 17-credit hours in electives and/or minor required for ARCH degree. Elective courses must be 2000-level course or higher.
    9. Not all courses are offered every semester.

Disclaimer: An academic map is a suggested four-year schedule of courses based on degree requirements in the KSU undergraduate catalog. This sample schedule serves as a general guideline to help build a full schedule each term. Some departments allow students to use the three credit first-year seminar course as a free elective for a degree program, which may impact the program's total credit hours. Milestones, courses, and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major are designated to keep you on track to graduate in four years. Missing milestones could delay your program. Enrolled Students should reference DegreeWorks and not this plan.

This map is not a substitute for academic advisement—contact your advisor if you have any questions about scheduling or about your degree requirements. Also see the current undergraduate catalog (catalog.kennesaw.edu) for a complete list of requirements and electives. Note: Requirements are continually under revision, and there is no guarantee they will not be changed or revoked; contact the department and/or program area for current information.

You may choose to attend a summer term to reduce your load during fall or spring terms but still stay on track to graduate in four years.
