Architectural schools generally require a minimum of four years in residence. For students who prefer two years at Harding, the following program is recommended. If only one year can be taken at Harding, an advisor can prepare an appropriate one-year program. In either case, it is helpful to know the requirements of the school to which the student wishes to transfer. There is no guarantee that taking one or two years at Harding will reduce the years required at another school. Students transferring to another university may be required to take specific courses at that university before being accepted into their architectural program.
For students who prefer to stay at Harding for four years, the Interior Architecture and Design program offers a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree which offers an excellent foundation for future study in an architectural program.
