There are three types of professional degreesin architecture offered through colleges and universities:

- 5-year Bachelor of Architecture programs intended for students entering programs from high school or with no previous architectural training

- 2-year Master of Architecture programs for students with a preprofessional undergraduate degree in architecture or a related area
