Five-Year Bachelor of Architecture (BArch) Degree

Be on your way to becoming a licensed architect!

SUNY Delhi’s rigorous 5-year architecture program takes a multidisciplinary approach to the trade, equipping you with the relevant knowledge and skills to successfully join an architectural office upon graduation. Utilizing modern tools and practices, our program emphasizes technical architectural development, structural application, and environmental impact. You’ll learn from practicing professionals in small classes that foster your unique abilities through hands-on learning. Increasingly complex design projects challenge you to reach your full potential. You’ll graduate with a deep understanding of both the creative and technical processes involved in architecture as well as a professional portfolio. Completing this degree also qualifies you to sit for the architecture licensure exam.

This program fulfills the educational requirements to pursue an architectural license.

You can enter this program as a first-year student or transfer from a two- or four-year architecture program. GPA requirements and portfolio review apply for transfers.
