About Our Accreditation

More Information
Scroll down to the bottom of this page to view the total number of students enrolled and graduates of all CETA programs for the 2018-19 Academic Year.

Our programs are all accredited, meaning you can trust the quality of the education you receive. This distinction also leads to more career opportunities. For example, you must graduate from an accredited school to be licensed or certified in technical professions or to work for multinational corporations.

The Master of Architecture program is accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB). The University of Hartford's Department of Architecture offers three NAAB-accredited degree program tracks.

  • M.Arch Track 1 – 48 graduate credits (3 semesters) with a preprofessional architecture degree from the University of Hartford.
  • M.Arch Track 2 - 64 graduate credits (4 semesters) with a preprofessional architecture degree.
  • M.Arch Track 3 - 113 graduate credits (7 semesters) with any 4-year bachelor’s degree.

In the United States, most state architectural 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 U.S. professional degree programs in architecture, recognizes three types of degrees: the Bachelor of Architecture, the Master of Architecture, and the Doctor of Architecture. A program may be granted an 8-year, 4-year, or 2-year term of accreditation, depending on the extent of its conformance with established educational standards.  The University of Hartford Master of Architecture program achieved initial accreditation in 2008 and was recently awarded an 8-year continuing accreditation in 2017. The next NAAB accreditation visit will take place in spring 2025.

Doctor of Architecture and Master of Architecture degree programs may consist of a preprofessional undergraduate degree and a professional graduate degree that, when earned sequentially, constitute an accredited professional education; however, the preprofessional degree is not, by itself, recognized as an accredited degree. The University of Hartford offers both a Bachelor of Science preprofessional architecture degree and a professional Master of Architecture degree.
