Accreditation

Architecture senior final presentations displayed in Mackey Innovation Space

Howard University’s Bachelor of Architecture is a fully accredited five-year professional degree program. The Bachelor of Architecture program was first accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) in 1951. NAAB is the sole agency authorized in the United States to accredit professional degree programs in architecture. A program may be granted an accreditation term of eight years, three years or two years as determined by a review of the program’s conformance to established educational standards.

Howard’s Architecture program received the full eight-year term after its last site visit in 2018 (2018 APR and 2018 VTR). Howard’s Bachelor of Architecture program was visited by a NAAB site visit team March 31 to April 4, 2018. The program was evaluated according to the current NAAB Conditions and Procedures. The NAAB board granted the program an eight-year term of accreditation at the July 2018 meeting. This extends the program accreditation to 2026.

Most architecture registration boards in the United States require a degree from an accredited professional program. The pass rate of Howard architecture graduates on the Architecture Registration Exam (ARE) is available at the NCARB website.
