An architectural education is a comprehensive design degree. That means an architecture degree opens the doors to many different career paths, and provides you with a set of transferable core skills that can be used in a wide variety of areas. You are not locked into being a traditional architect. Architectural education gives you the ability to be proficient in:

-Graphic Design

-Project Management


-Networking Communication


-Public Speaking

-Problem Solving


-Relationship Building


-Value Innovation
