When you focus your studies on architecture, you develop analytical expertise, enhance your presentation skills, learn software, and become adept at formulating concise plans. With an undergraduate degree you might work as a general contractor, handle the production design for a movie, build a business as a real estate developer, or continue your education toward certification as an architect.
Each spring the School of Architecture hosts Career XPO, where you can meet and interview with employers. The school's career office also provides mock interviews, assists with job searches, and helps graduating students connect with professional firms.
The mean salary for an architect was $76,260 as of May 2016 according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
