Imagine … a career in architecture, construction management, planning, or a broad range of dynamic, high-demand careers. Architecture at Mt. SAC provides a foundation for both direct employment in the field or transfer to a broad range of university and professional programs. You'll find our graduates at top universities around the U.S., in leadership roles in their communities, and pursuing fulfilling careers with top employers.
Architectural education is a complex blend of arts and sciences. Our curriculum offers a range of programs, including A.S. Degrees and 3 levels of certificates. These programs are divided into two concentrations or tracks: design (usually recommended for transfer candidates) and technology (emphasizing workplace competencies).
This curriculum is centered around an academic core of four courses in critical skill areas - design, drawing, materials, and computer-aided design (CAD). We offer some of the finest lab facilities in the state, with state of the art computer labs, leading application software, such as AutoCAD, SketchUp, and Rhino, and a range of output devices, including large format and 3-D printing. Interested students are always welcome – please check out our student gallery and schedule a visit!
