Accreditation

The Architecture Program at UTSA is home to four academic programs, two of which require national accreditation. In Architecture, both the M.Arch 2 and M.Arch 3 programs are accredited by NAAB, the National Architectural Accrediting Board. 

In the United States, most registration boards require a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a prerequisite for licensure. The National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), which is the sole agency authorized to accredit professional degree programs in architecture offered by institutions with U.S. regional accreditation, recognizes three types of degrees: the Bachelor of Architecture, the Master of Architecture, and the Doctor of Architecture. A program may be granted an eight-year, three-year, or two-year term of accreditation, depending on the extent of its conformance with established educational standards.

Doctor of Architecture and Master of Architecture degree programs may require a preprofessional undergraduate degree in architecture for admission. However, the preprofessional degree is not, by itself, recognized as an accredited degree.

The University of Texas San Antonio, Department of Architecture, offers the following NAAB-accredited degree programs:

M.Arch 2 (121 credit hours of B.S. Architecture* + 52 graduate credit hours) 

M.Arch 3 (non-architectural undergraduate degree + (up to) 39 preparatory graduate credits + 52 M.Arch 2 credit hours)

* or other pre-professional degree in architecture from another institution. 

We received our most recent M.Arch 2 and M.Arch 3 program six-year program accreditation in 2010 (2009 Conditions). Our next evaluation is scheduled to be completed in the Fall of 2016. For this upcoming review we will be one of the first schools evaluated under the new 2014 Conditions for Accreditation. In addition, UTSA is also evaluated by SACS (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools), which also requires us to assess each of our degree programs on an annual basis as stipulated in the the Principles of Accreditation: Foundations for Quality Enhancement.

Next Accreditation Visit for M.Arch 2 & M.Arch 3 programs: Fall 2016
