IMPORTANT: B. Arch Curriculum at SPSU continually corroborates with changes in the Design Profession. We strive to maintain high academic and professional standards in an effort to effectively prepare our students for competitive local and global markets. Any and all changes in the Curriculum become immediately in effect upon Architecture Faculty approval and supersede all previous versions of B. Arch Program Curriculum Matrix and University Catalogs. Students must keep up with the curriculum changes and meet any and all changes and requirements set in the most current version of the B. Arch Curriculum in an effort to successfully earn their professional degree in Architecture.
