Track 2: Bachelor of Environmental Design in Architecture, B.E.D.A.

A four-year pre-professional Bachelor of Environmental Design in Architecture degree (B.E.D.A.) intended for students who will pursue a professional master’s degree or enter a related field.

The commonalities between the disciplines of architecture and interior architecture provide the context for students in Marywood’s architecture and interior architecture programs to share professional core and elective courses, including the foundation design studios, as well as, digital media and the history of architecture courses.

All qualified students are accepted into the professional Bachelor of Architecture degree track. Students who wish to enter the pre-professional B.E.D.A. degree may transfer from the B.ARCH. prior to their fourth year.
