NAAB Accreditation

Kennesaw State University's Department of Architecture is proud to be one of the few National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) accredited architecture schools in Georgia! Our Bachelor of Architecture degree program is NAAB accredited and offers students the following benefits in one statement:

“In the United States, most registration boards require a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a prerequisite for licensure. The National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), which is the sole agency authorized to accredit professional degree programs in architecture offered by institutions with U.S. regional accreditation, recognizes three types of degrees: the Bachelor of Architecture, the Master of Architecture, and the Doctor of Architecture. A program may be granted an eight-year term, an eight-year term with conditions, or a two-year term of continuing accreditation, or a three-year term of initial accreditation, depending on the extent of its conformance with established education standards. Doctor of Architecture and Master of Architecture degree programs may require a non-accredited undergraduate degree in architecture for admission. However, the non-accredited degree is not, by itself, recognized as an accredited degree.”

This statement is required to be included in all catalogs and promotional material for an accredited program.
