Complete the unique one-year program in architecture at JCCC, and you’ll be ready for the challenges of any college or university transfer program. Choose the two-year program, and that same confidence will be paired with an associate degree in liberal arts.

Classes in architecture prepare you for a career in many fields: urban planning, construction management, interior design and, of course, architecture. Through individual work and group study, you will learn critical thinking skills necessary for today’s workplace.

Plenty of studio time

Professors within the department believe in letting you learn by doing. Projects constructed during your studio time allow you to apply what you’ve learned in the classroom. As you complete the curriculum, you’ll build on the masters to create your own perspective on homes, workplaces and community facilities.

Architecture transfer opportunities

JCCC offers the only transfer program in Kansas that carries you directly into the second year of an established university architecture program. Transfer to the University of Kansas School of Architecture and Design or the Hammons School of Architecture at Drury University, and continue building on your degree with no time or credits lost.

Students can transfer to other schools, too. Architecture alumni have graduated from Kansas State University, the University of Missouri-Kansas City and other universities in Iowa, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas and more. In fact, students who complete their first year in the Architecture program at JCCC have an 85 percent graduation rate from four-year colleges and universities.
