The Bachelor of Architecture program at KSU is a 5-year, NAAB accredited, first professional degree in architecture, leading to eligibility for licensure (Architectural Registration Exam).

The B.ARCH Program is centered on the ten-semester studio sequence that proceeds from the basic fundamentals of design and architecture, through the technical aspects of building and comprehensive design, to investigations of the urban condition. It culminates in the fifth year's exploration of architecture as a form of design research. Reinforcing the studios are sequences in design communication, architecture culture, structure, environmental technology and professional practice. Collectively, they provide the more holistic understanding of the design process necessary for the production of functional and meaningful architecture.FAQ's

This collection was started with the graduates of the Spring 2017 semester, after the consolidation between Kennesaw State University and Southern Polytechnic State University was final (July 2015).
