Mathematics or Architecture or Mathematics

I am a senior and I am interested in architecture. I learned that for some people, they get a bachelor's degree in one area, then they continue  their education get a master's degree in a similar area. Does this method work for architecture? I found out that some  schools offer a master degree in archieture in five or six year. However,  with a strong foundation in math, is it possible to get a bachelor's degree in architecture related area, such as mathematics or arts, then get my master degree in architecture.

To answer your question, the answer is YES; one path is to obtain an undergraduate BS or BA degree in another discipline and then pursue at Master of Architecture.  As you suggest, you could very much obtain a degree in mathematics and pursue the Master of Architecture (3-4 years).  This route does take longer.

Students in high school typically pursue architecture out of high school, but you could choose either route.  I would suggest a school that has a good program in both disciplines as you could pursue a minor in either discipline while pursuing the major in the other.
