Resources - Architecture Programs

For those seeking to apply to architecture programs (U.S.) for fall 2010, there are many resources to research.

NAAB -- www.naab.org -- The National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) website has a limited search engine to search all accredited programs in the U.S. You can search by region and degree type. It provides full contact information along with the program's term of accreditation and website address.

ARCHSchools -- www.archschools.org -- A resource of ACSA, ARCHSchools provides more descriptive information on each accredited program including both narrative and demographic information. You can search on many more criteria including specialty. ACSA also pubishes a book, Guide to Architecture Schools with the same information -- https://www.acsa-arch.org/store/guide8.aspx

ARCHCareers -- www.archcareers.org -- A resource of AIAS and AIA, ARCHCareers.org provides critical information on the process of becoming an architect. It has an entire section on Education and provides links to other resources.

Boston Career Day -- www.architects.org/programs_&_education/index.cfm?doc_id=103 -- Held each fall, the Boston Career Day will be held on Saturday, October 3 at Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston, MA. It is an opportunity to visit with representatives from over 35 programs in architecture on a Saturday morning.

Becoming an Architect: A Guide to Careers in Design -- he-cda.wiley.com/WileyCDA/HigherEdTitle/productCd-0471709549.html -- Published in 2006, Becoming an Architect is a highly visual career guide for those who are considering, or embarking upon, a career in architecture. It includes an entire chapter on how to select and decide upon an architecture program. The 2nd edition will be published this December.

Architecture Program Open Houses -- Many programs will host open houses for prospective students to learn more about their program, visit with current students and faculty, and tour their facilities. www.ARCHCareers.org will post a list of Graduate Open Houses by mid-September.

If you know of other resources, please share.
