New York Institute of Technology (NYIT), New York, NY, US, BArch, B. Architecture

I graduated with the 5-year B. Arch:

All students admitted to the undergraduate architecture program enter the Bachelor of Science in Architecture Technology (B.S.A.T.) program and undertake a two-year common core curriculum. This curriculum includes design studios and architectural history courses, as well as liberal arts courses such as English composition, math, physics, behavioral science, economics, fine arts, and social science.

After successful completion of the two-year common core curriculum, students may continue in the four-year B.S.A.T. program, which is accredited by New York State and may lead to New York State licensure, or apply for admission into the five-year B.Arch. program, which provides the successful candidate with a first professional degree accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board. The NAAB-certified B.Arch. degree may lead to New York State licensure plus reciprocal licensure in all states except California.

With the Bachelor of Architecture degree, the successful student may proceed with the sequence of internship and the professional steps that lead to licensure as well as eligibility for certification from the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB). The B.S.A.T. is a non-professional degree that permits the successful student to gain a license to practice architecture in the State of New York but does not make the degree holder eligible for NCARB certification. Should the successful B.S.A.T. graduate later seek to gain a first professional degree in architecture, he or she could pursue a first professional degree Bachelor of Architecture or a first professional degree Master of Architecture.
