    School Overview

    Boston Architectural College is a four-year, private not-for-profit institution of higher education, located in the city of Boston, Massachusetts. BAC was founded in 1889, as a club for architects. In 2006, the school was renamed Boston Architectural College to better reflect its professional degree offerings. The location of the campus in Boston’s Back Bay area is a bonus, in that it is close to design firms, museums, galleries, and cultural institutions. The college awards bachelor’s and master’s degrees in architecture, design, and landscape along with postgraduate certificates, and continuing education.

    Boston Architectural College offers distance learning master’s degrees for professional adults that desire to pursue studies in the fields of architecture and design. Students engage in asynchronous learning content integrated with professional experiences within the place of employment. While the large majority of coursework is delivered electronically, students are required to participate in intensive 8-day residencies at the Newbury Street campus.
