The Samford Bachelor of Science in Architecture is intended as a degree to allow a student to proceed directly into the accelerated Master of Architecture. By itself, it is not designed to be an accredited, professional degree and therefore does not satisfy the qualifications for licensure as an architect in most states in the U.S.

NAAB Candidacy: In the United States, most state 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 U.S. professional degree programs in architecture, recognizes three types of degrees: the Bachelor of Architecture, the Master of Architecture, and the Doctor of Architecture. The Samford University Architecture Program has applied for eligibility of accreditation with the NAAB.
