Accreditation

The Hammons School of Architecture (HSA) offers a five-year first professional Master of Architecture degree that is fully accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), which requires that all accredited programs post the following statement:

In the United States, most registration boards require a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a prerequisite for licensure. The National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), which is the sole agency authorized to accredit U.S. professional degree programs in architecture offered by institutions with U.S. regional accreditation, recognizes three types of degrees: the Bachelor of Architecture, the Master of Architecture, and the Doctor of Architecture. A program may be granted an eight-year, three-year, or two-year term of accreditation, depending on the extent of its conformance with established educational standards. Doctor of Architecture and Master of Architecture degree programs may require a preprofessional undergraduate degree in architecture for admission. However, the preprofessional degree is not, by itself, recognized as an accredited degree.

Drury University, Hammons School of Architecture, offers the following NAAB-accredited program:

M.Arch. (168 total credit hours; minimum 36 master’s-level credit hours)
