Bachelor of Science, Architectural Studies (BSAS) is a four-year undergraduate pre-professional program that prepares students for graduate studies in architecture and related design and construction fields. The primary goal of the BSAS program is to introduce students to architecture as both a technical and cultural practice. The four-year BSAS program is comprised of a three-year core, followed by one year of specialized and individualized study. Over the course of their studies, a BSAS student enrolls in a variety of studios, lectures and seminars to accrue skills in architectural making, thinking, design, visualization, digital fabrication, prototyping, and simulation. In addition to learning essential analytical and creative-problem solving skills, students are required to complete courses in structures & construction, environmental & building technology, human behavior, and contemporary criticism. In their fourth year, students are asked to select from a wide range of architectural electives and advanced studios, allowing them the opportunity to craft a curriculum based on their areas of interest. Graduates of the BSAS program can continue their studies at UW-Milwaukee School of Architecture and Urban Planning by applying to the Master of Architecture (M.Arch), Master of Science in Architecture (M.S.), or Master of Urban Planning (MUP) program.
