Jobs In Architecture

If you think this is the right career for you, here are some steps you can take . . .

Step 1

Understanding the requirements!

This great and rewarding career is very demanding as it requires a lot of time. A 5-year degree program, 3-year training period, and successful completion of the Architect Registration Examination will all be required to become a full-fledged architect.

Step 2

Education! You will need to enroll in a 5-year Bachelor of Architecture program from a school that is accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB). Competition is fierce so bring your “A” game as it will be needed to separate yourself from the rest.

Step 3

Training period!

Each state has an architectural registration board that requires graduates to complete a training period. This training period must be done under the supervision of a licensed architect. This can be done by completing an internship after graduation. If an internship is done while you are in school, some of the time can be counted towards the training period.

Step 4


Before you can officially call yourself an architect, you must take and pass the licensure exam. (Architect Registration Examination). This exam is comprised of multiple choice and/or graphical questions.

Step 5

Continuing Education!

States will require some sort of maintenance on your license so be prepared to take university courses, attended conferences, and go to workshops to keep your skills sharp.
