The Bachelor of Design in Architecture program is a partnership with Valencia College and the University of Florida, enabling students to complete an NAAB accredited architectural program in Central Florida. Students earn the credentials needed to become a design professional or begin preparing for a career as an architect.

Through the 2+2+2 program, you can complete your associate’s degree at Valencia, your bachelor’s degree at UCF and your master’s degree at UF. Courses for the associate’s and bachelor’s degree program are taught at the joint-use University Center on Valencia’s West Campus. The master’s program is located at UF’s Citylab Orlando in downtown Orlando.

Please Note: Currently, there is no shuttle service available from UCF’s main campus to Valencia West.
