Arch Major

Program Overview

Fresno State's Construction Management Department is proud to have created new opportunities for our students with the addition of our Architectural Studies program. In the Fall of 2020, after recognizing a need by students interested in becoming licensed architects, we began offering a Major in Architectural Studies. 
Students in our program are being prepared for a career in the architectural design field. Our program incorporates interdisciplinary courses that not only provide students with a solid understanding of architectural design concepts but with a firm understanding of design graphics, urban studies, city and regional planning and constructability to make them competitive in the architecture industry.
