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.
The new Samford University Architecture Program is currently seeking accreditation by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB). Initial accreditation is anticipated in Spring 2027. Learn more about it here.
