Okay so the thing is, the university I applied to didn't offer me admission in its B.Arch program (which was my first option) but is ready to take me for its Interior Design program (my second option).
a very long time I have wanted to pursue the profession of
architecture. So now the question arises-do I take the offer or I don't)
But before making that decision, I need to know a few things because of
which I'm writing to yo.
So I have two questions.
1- If I
have a 4 year Bachelors Degree in Interior Design and I want to do my
Master in Architecture, the universities will consider me for their
masters program in architecture right? I will be eligible for continuing
my studies in the field of architecture right? And later on I can
practice as an architect(after passing the license exams) ?
What degrees (masters) are offered in architecture? Coming from an
interior design background (a 4 year Bachelors in Interior Design), what
degree options do I have for masters level after which I'll be eligible
for a job in a firm as an architect?
I'm really really looking forward to your reply.
Answers to your two questions:
1) With a degree in interior design, you would be eligible to apply to a NAAB accredited Master of Architecture; however, the length of completing the degree would be 3-4 years.
2) The only degree to pursue to become an architect is the Master of Architecture. Once you have completed the accredited Master of Architecture, you could certainly seek to pursue a post-professional graduate degree in any number of disciplines -- urban design, sustainable design, preservation, etc.
