Accreditation

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 term during its last site visit in 2012 (2011 APR and 2012 VTR). As part of the next accreditation review cycle, 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.

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.
