The four-year Bachelor of Science in Architecture degree is a four-year pre-professional degree program of studies comprising, with a later two-year graduate program, the six-year Master of Architecture curriculum. This sequence, called the 4 + 2 model , has been adopted by many major universities as the most effective way of combining liberal education with professional education. It provides the basis for various career possibilities, including the professional degree of Master of Architecture or the Master of Landscape Architecture ; these advanced degrees are normally awarded after two years of graduate study (refer to the graduate catalog for details).
