ArchitectsArchitects design buildings and other structures. In addition to considering the way these buildings and structures look, they also make sure they are functional, safe, economical and suit the needs of the people who use them. Most architects are self employed unless they work with big companies.

There are three types of professional degrees in architecture offered through colleges and universities:

  1. 5-year Bachelor of Architecture programs intended for students entering programs from high school or with no previous architectural training

  2. 2-year Master of Architecture programs for students with a pre-professional undergraduate degree in architecture or a related area

  3. 3 or 4-year Master of Architecture programs offered to students with degrees in other disciplines
