In the USA, a bachelor’s degree in architecture can be earned in 4, 5, or 6 years. A four-year architecture degree that is not NAAB (National Architectural Accrediting Board) recognized will prevent students from working as professional architects in the USA. International students should enroll in a 5-year degree program if they want to pursue a profession as an architect in the USA. Some colleges don’t have a 5-year degree program, but they do offer a 6-year dual degree (Bachelors’s and Master’s) program that is NAAB approved. The architecture master’s program lasts two to three years.
