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. The associate’s and bachelor’s degree programs are housed at the joint-use University Center on Valencia’s West Campus, and the master’s program is located at UF’s Citylab Orlando in downtown Orlando.
