I currently hold an honors bachelors of science in economics and statistics and was interested in pursuing a non-professional 3.5 year masters in architecture from an accredited NAAB school. I was wondering if I will still be able to become a licensed architect with a non-professional degree.

Absolutely! Many architecture programs throughout the country offer a Master of Architecture (typically 3-4 years) for individuals who have an undergraduate degree in another discipline. To become a licensed architect, you must have a professional accredited Master of Architecture, complete IDP, and pass the ARE.

Below are a few resources that may be helpful including the BLOG I maintain to list previously asked questions and my response.
