IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT
ONLINE ARCHITECTURE DEGREES: CLARIFICATION
We would like to stress the importance of educational proficiency
gained by learning hands on technique, particularly within
fields such as architecture that require students to build
or work with their hands. Pure architecture typically requires
physical manipulation of objects (construction models), or
detailed documentation of schematics to complete a project.
Learning this type of skill is commonly taught in a studio
or classroom setting allowing teachers to demonstrate required
learning material visually, ergo an online architecture degree
program from start to finish is rare, and possibly non-existent.
Our educational partners do offer architectural degree programs
that resemble more of an interior or network architectural
course layout, which are all available as online architecture
degrees. Because these degree programs are geared more toward
interior designers, and information technology architecture
management professionals, course work can be completed entirely
If your goal is to work as an architect (planning and designing
building construction), be advised that you should seek degree
programs that have course work completed in a studio or classroom
for proper education.*
