University at Buffalo Architecture's undergraduate preprofessional Bachelor of Science in Architecture (BS Arch) is formulated around a studio-based curriculum that emphasizes thinking through making. University at Buffalo Architecture boasts one of the largest material shops for an architecture and urban planning school that includes conventional and digital fabrication technologies. Students work directly with materials and tools, producing models that help them connect the formal basis of architecture with its physical construction. In addition, the design studios are supported by lectures and seminars in history, theory and building technologies of architecture. These courses help students understand that architecture is a multi-disciplinary profession that combines knowledge from the humanities, the applied arts and engineering technology. The pre-professional Bachelor of Science in Architecture (BS Arch) is the foundation for our accredited professional Master of Architecture.
