Most architecture majors, after completing their studies and obtaining their professional degree, will choose to obtain their license to practice architecture and go into private practice as owners of their own firm.

As practitioners, they will service a wide variety of clientele: private, business, institutional, and governmental. Others may elect to find employment in existing architectural firms, as members of their teams, in the design and development of the built environment.

Some may elect to do advance work in fields such as art, historic restoration, product development, government, politics, business administration, law, education, medicine, research, land development, the military, etc. Others find opportunities in related fields that utilize the technical and problem-solving skills obtained from their architectural education.

Recommended high school preparation: academic program including mathematics (4 years), science (4 years), English (4 years), art (2 years), mechanical drawing (1 semester). Students should check course descriptions and prerequisites, and discuss recommended sequence with an architectural counselor/advisor.
