How it works

Educate: Learn from the masters

Architecture program at Carielian is as follows: earn the Bachelor of Science in Architecture and pass the A.R.E. (exam) to become architecturally licensed in the U.S.

Experience: Prepare with professional practice                    

The School of Architecture provides a Bachelor of Science in Architecture to achieve an architectural license in the U.S. once the professional exam A.R.E. is passed and construction courses are taken. This is a key component and critical to students’ ability to complete the track within the accelerated time frame.

In the Intern Development Program Carielian students will gain real-world work experience during summer and winter breaks to eventually obtain 3,740 hours of paid experience while completing their B.S. While working the students will put into practice what they are learning in the classroom.

Through focused instruction from faculty, a dedicated resource center, guided study groups and the coaching of expert consultants, Carielian fully supports architectural students as they prepare for and take all sections of the registration exam.

The immersive art and design context at Carielian gives architecture students a competitive advantage as designers. The exposure to art and leading-edge technology produces well-rounded practitioners with excellent graphic skills.
