Architecture Interest

Associate of General Studies Degree

A total of 90 credits are required to complete the Associate of General Studies (AGS) degree. The courses listed below are only meant to serve as a guide of recommended choices within categories required in the AGS framework. See the AGS graduation guide for full degree requirements. The following list includes recommended courses for students who have an interest in architecture, primarily focused on developing skills necessary for entry into an architecture, but may also be accepted as core required freshman architecture courses by the specific institution.

Students must research the specific requirements of the architectural program they plan to transfer into; all such programs, in Oregon and nationally, are rigorous, conservatory-based programs, requiring generally five years of full-time study, accepting limited transfer credits. Students will have to be accepted into the program before they can begin study. The great majority of the classwork is program-specific, students work in a cohort setting, and the courses are offered only at the transfer institution. Students are encouraged to work closely with their RCC academic advisors and visit the transfer school of choice website for specific admission and academic major requirements.

This guide lays out an optimal path to graduate in two years as you prepare to transfer to a four-year Oregon college or university. Please meet with an advisor for any questions about alternate classes in any given term. When transferring to a four-year Oregon state college or university, one of the following options must be met as a requirement for admission:

  1. Two years of the same high school-level world language
  2. Two terms of college-level world language (may be first-year world language, which can be used as elective credits)

This is for students who have graduated from high school or completed a high school equivalency program in 1997 or after. Additionally, if a student intends to complete a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree at a four-year school, they must complete two years of a college level world language regardless of when they graduated from high school or an equivalency program. Completing the first year in terms 4-6 at RCC sets you up for the second-year sequence when you transfer.

Where zero credits are listed in the prerequisites, students may place into a higher-level(s) based on designated placement score(s). Note, some prerequisites may be required for graduation. Please consult an advisor with any program completion questions.
