Bachelor of Architectural Studies Degree

Bachelor of Architectural Studies (BAS) focuses on knowledge, experience, creativity and imagination. Our program encourages exploring ideas through making, evaluating ideas within the context of the human experience, and exercising creativity through writing, model making, drawing, and digital media. The Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism awards the pre-professional BAS degree upon successful completion of our four-year program of study. If you intend to practice architecture, you can apply to our professional Master of Architecture program or equivalent professional training at another university. The BAS program is an excellent degree for a range of careers or for further studies in design.
