The National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) is the sole agency authorized to accredit US professional degree programs in architecture. Since most state registration boards in the United States require any applicant for licensure to have graduated from a NAAB-accredited program, obtaining such a degree is an essential aspect of preparing for the professional practice of architecture. While graduation from a NAAB-accredited program does not assure registration, the accrediting process is intended to verify that each accredited program substantially meets standards that, as a whole, comprise an appropriate education for an architect. For more information, visit the NAAB Website. For information on NAAB Procedures, visit the NAAB Procedure Page.
The University of Florida School of Architecture offers the following NAAB-accredited degree programs:
- M. Arch. (pre-professional degree + 52 graduate credits)
- M. Arch. (professional degree + 30 graduate credits)
- M. Arch. (non-pre-professional degree + 48 undergraduate credits + 52 graduate credits)
