Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies

Drury University > Hammons School of Architecture > Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies

Students who don’t intend to work towards licensure may prefer the four-year non-accredited pre-professional bachelor of science in architectural studies. This degree prepares students for careers in areas that relate to design and construction, while also providing flexibility and allowing broader exploration in their Drury coursework. Students who excel in the B.S.A.S. program may be candidates for subsequent architectural studies in graduate programs at other institutions.

Since the courses of study for both the M.Arch and B.S.A.S degrees are identical for the first seven semesters of either program, students may freely declare or change major paths at any point prior to applying for graduation. Students receiving the Drury B.S.A.S. degree will not be eligible to also receive the Drury M. Arch. Degree, since both are officially considered undergraduate degrees.

In order to earn the B.S.A.S. degree, students must:

  1. Earn a minimum total of 124 credit hours.
  2. Satisfy all Your Drury Fusion curriculum requirements.
  3. Complete, with a minimum grade of C-, all of the B.S.A.S. courses listed below.
  4. Complete one ARCH 405 or ARCH 406 section designated a Community Based Studio.
  5. Complete a minimum of 12 credit hours of Free Electives with designations other than ARCH or MARC.
  6. Complete an approved international architecture program experience with a minimum duration of 5 weeks.

A minimum grade of C- must be achieved in each of the required courses listed below. All prerequisites must be completed prior to enrollment in these courses.
