Through a new partnership between UCF, Valencia, and the University of Florida, both UCF and Valencia students will have the chance to earn a Bachelor of Design in Architecture degree.
Beginning in the Fall of 2010, architecture classes will be taught at the new University Center Building on Valencia’s West campus off of Kirkman road. Architecture is a major that was previously not included in the long list of degrees available at UCF.
After completing the major as a UCF student, the student has the option to obtain a Masters degree from the University of Florida, through additional classes at the University Center Building in Orlando.
The Orlando chapter of the American Institute of Architects played a role in organizing the program between the schools.
UCF says the degree will prepare students for a professional career in architecture, construction, or industrial design.
