The National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) is the sole agency authorized to accredit US professional degree programs in architecture. Since most state registration boards in the United States require any applicant for licensure to have graduated from a NAAB-accredited program, obtaining such a degree is an essential aspect of preparing for the professional practice of architecture.
There are currently 154 NAAB accredited professional programs in architecture housed in 123 institutions offering the Doctor of Architecture (1), Master of Architecture (95) or Bachelor of Architecture degree (58). In addition, six (6) institutions, are in the midst of establishing a professional degree program in architecture; these seven have been granted candidacy status.
