Committed to Excellence

Professional careers in architecture and Interior design are the goals of the programs we offer. The architecture and interior design curricula provides students with a ready path to the larger professional world based on domain of ideas, historical context, and deep understanding of the human condition. Specialized knowledge, experience and opportunities enable students to think critically about the built environment from a creative and innovative approach, with practical application for the world in which we live.

In terms of quality, academic excellence, more than 130 architecture and interior design students have received awards in 63 major design or research competitions over the last 10years, at the local, national, and international levels. This consistent record of competitive success reflect the educational and professional focus of the school. Thanks to developed knowledge, skills and abilities and with CAPPA’s tradition of integrating work and academic experience, graduates of The University of Texas at Arlington are fully prepared to enter the professional world.


The National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) is the sole agency authorized to accredit professional degree programs in architecture in the United States. Since most US state registration boards require any applicant for licensure to have graduated from an NAAB-accredited program, obtaining such a degree is an essential aspect of preparing for the professional practice of architecture. While graduation from an NAAB-accredited program does not assure registration, the accrediting process is intended to verify that each accredited program substantially meets those standards that, as a whole, comprise an appropriate education for an architect.
