The course of study of the Bachelor of Architecture includes studio courses on design and aesthetic theory, as well as practical courses on structures, building mechanical systems, electrical systems, plumbing and construction. Student work is often in the form of drawings and renderings, either through computer-aided design or drafting by hand. Students also build physical models and create presentation boards for drawings and graphics.

In nearly all architecture schools in the United States, student life and work revolves around a studio class. Other classes in the architecture curriculum are designed to support the concepts emphasized in studio. One particularly rigorous aspect of studio classes is the "critique" or "review." After spending sleepless nights preparing models and presentation drawings, students "pin-up" their work on display for instructors (and students) offer constructive criticism. The workload in architecture classes is often many times more than other university programs, in addition to being a five year program. Because of this workload, students must be very dedicated, but a high level of understanding of the material often results.

As of December 2005, there were sixty-seven accredited Bachelor of Architecture programs in the United States.
