Architecture Field of Study
The Architecture Field of Study curriculum is designed for students seeking a bachelor’s degree with a major in architecture.
ACC’s field of study courses for architecture are listed below. The Field of Study Curriculum for Architecture consists of 36 lower-division semester credit hours that are fully transferable. Academic credit shall be granted on a course-for-course basis at the credit-hour level of the receiving institution. Full academic credit shall be granted on the basis of comparable courses completed, not on specific numbers of credit hours accrued. Courses are intended to fulfill all or part of various National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB). Note that two of the courses in this Field of Study are not currently offered by ACC.

Students should always consult with an academic or Architectural & Engineering Computer-Aided Design faculty advisor regarding transfer to a specific college or university. In addition, students should consult with an advisor at the Texas college or university to which they are transferring for additional information.
