Bachelor of Architectural Studies


As a student you will need to be passionate, imaginative and enjoy problem solving to succeed in this field. Study areas within the discipline of architecture include design studio, history and theory of architecture, design communication, ‘hands on’ construction workshop and city culture and environment.

Professional Outcomes

A career in architecture is not limited to the creation of buildings and structures. The best architects have the skill to integrate both the art and elements of construction with the visual, tactile and other experiential qualities of space and place. Career opportunities are available in private architectural practices, government, construction, infrastructure and development organisations.

Professional Recognition

Bond University is seeking recognition and accreditation of the professional degree from the Architects Accreditation Council of Australia (AACA). Students who complete the Master of Architecture*, plus two years of practical architectural experience may be eligible to undertake the Architectural Practice Examination for registration with the Board of Architects of Queensland.
