Bachelor of Architecture/Bachelor of Arts, Plan II Dual Degree Program

The Bachelor of Architecture/Bachelor of Arts, Plan II, dual degree program is sponsored jointly by the School of Architecture and the College of Liberal Arts. The five-year program, which includes summer sessions, offers the academic and professional advantage of a strong liberal arts background.

Students interested in this program should consult the Plan II Program  description given in the College of Liberal Arts.

The following outline of courses is a suggested method for simultaneously completing the requirements for both degree programs. Students should consult their advisers, the lists below, and the Bachelor of Arts, Plan II  degree program given in the College of Liberal Arts to ensure that their coursework plans will fulfill all requirements of both degrees.


A total of at least 186 hours of coursework is required for this dual degree program.

All students must complete the University's Core Curriculum  as well as the courses listed in the following table. In some cases, a course that is required for the dual degree program may also be counted toward the core curriculum; these courses are identified below.
