Undergraduate Programs







The USC undergraduate program combines the strengths of a world-class architecture program, situated in one of the world's epicenters of design and culture, with the vast field of courses and experiences offered across the greater USC campus. The School of Architecture offers a range of undergraduate programs to fit a variety of student needs.  The five-year Bachelor of Architecture offers a professional degree with a discipline-specific curriculum emphasizing core fundamentals during the first three years and advanced studies during the fourth and fifth year. The four-year Bachelor of Science degree offers the student a core disciplinary curriculum with the flexibility to engage a broader set of knowledge through a more expansive engagement with other USC departments. The Bachelor of Science in GeoDesign offers students a cross-disciplinary approach to design through the lens of spatial information and principles. Students who are less sure about their professional future, but have a passion or interest in architecture, may also minor in the field.
