Architecture Accreditation

The University of Memphis, Department of Architecture, offers the professional Master of Architecture (M.Arch) degree based on the national "4+2" model which consists of the pre-professional Bachelor of Fine Arts in Architecture degree and the professional M.Arch degree.  The M.Arch degree is fully accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB).  The BFA in Architecture is a pre-professional degree and is therefore not accredited by the NAAB.  Please see below for important information on accreditation.
 
In the United States, most registration boards require a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a prerequisite for licensure. The National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), which is the sole agency authorized to accredit professional degree programs in architecture offered by institutions with U.S. regional accreditation, recognizes three types of degrees: the Bachelor of Architecture, the Master of Architecture, and the Doctor of Architecture. A program may be granted an eight-year, three-year, or two-year term of accreditation, depending on the extent of its conformance with established educational standards.  Doctor of Architecture and Master of Architecture degree programs may require a pre-professional undergraduate degree in architecture  for admission. However, the pre-professional degree is not, by itself, recognized as an accredited degree.
 
The University of Memphis, Department of Architecture, offers the following NAAB-accredited degree program:  M.Arch. (pre-professional degree + 60 graduate credits).  Initial Candidacy: 2008;  Continuation of Candidacy: 2010;  Initial Accreditation: 2012;  Continuing Accreditation: 2015;  Next accreditation visit: 2023.
 
In order to meet the education requirement set forth by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards, an applicant for an NCARB Certificate must hold a professional degree in architecture from a program accredited by the NAAB; the degree must have been awarded not more than two years prior to initial accreditation. However, meeting the education requirement for the NCARB Certificate may not be equivalent to meeting the education requirement for registration in a specific jurisdiction. Please contact NCARB for more information.
 

Interior design Accreditation

The Department of Architecture offers the four-year professional Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a major in Interior Design.  The degree is fully accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA).  The program was initially accredited in 2002 and granted continuing accreditation in 2008 and 2015.  The next visit will be in 2021.
 
The practice of interior design varies greatly from state to state.  In Tennessee, interior design is regulated by a title act, not a practice act.  This means only qualified individuals may use the title Registered Interior Designer.  For more information, contact the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ).
