Boston Architectural College (BAC)

Why Boston Architectural College (BAC)?

Founded in 1889, Boston Architectural College is committed to provide excellence in design education grounded in practice and accessible to diverse communities. One of the most unique characteristics of the BAC is the learning model which works in a way that students earn credits whilst participating in paid work at one of over three hundred design firms during the day, while attending classes in the evening, typically two to three nights per week. This educational experience connects the theoretical with the practical, affording students the ability to test for licensure upon graduation.
