Architecture

Murad-AbuslimWelcome to the Architecture Program at Texas Southmost College! This program, the only one of its kind in South Texas, offers a comprehensive and effective two-year curriculum that will lead to an Associate of Science in Architecture degree. Our mission is to provide quality architectural education in order to develop a strong foundation for future coursework as well as the profession of architecture. Through innovative pedagogy, this program will cultivate critical thinking, creativity, social responsibility, and collaboration skills. Our service-learning projects and community-engagement initiatives allow our students to develop their design skills through participation in a hands-on learning experience that is both authentic and meaningful.

This program's primary goal is to prepare students to continue their education toward a Bachelor of Science and a Master's in Architecture. Courses in the curriculum include Architectural Design, Architectural History, Architectural Graphics, Technology and Construction Methods, Architectural Computer Graphics, Math, Physics, and communication courses.

The program strives to equip students with attainable learning outcomes so they may be ready to provide quality service to their communities upon graduation. However, given the fact that architecture is a highly competitive profession and licensing requirements include a professional degree in architecture, students are strongly recommended to pursue a professional degree as soon as they complete their Associate's degree. The Architectural Program provides assistance for students during the transfer process.
