Architecture Degree Pathway
Degree pathways are designed for the student who plans to transfer to the University of Central Florida or the University of Florida as a junior to complete a Bachelor’s degree after completing an Associate in Arts degree at Valencia. Students who plan to transfer to a limited-access program are responsible for completing the specific requirements of the institution to which they will transfer as completion of this degree pathway does not guarantee admission to an upper division limited-access program.
This degree pathway includes the following Common Program Prerequisites (CPPs) which are required for transfer to the Architecture major at the University of Central Florida or the University of Florida:
|ARC 1201C||THEORY OF ARCHITECTURE||2|
|ARC 1301C||ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN I||4|
|ARC 1302C||ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN II||4|
|ARC 1701||HISTORY OF ARCHITECTURE I (GR)||3|
|ARC 2180C||INTRODUCTION TO DIGITAL ARCHITECTURE||3|
|ARC 2303C||ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN III||5|
|ARC 2304C||ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN IV||5|
|ARC 2461||MATERIALS AND METHODS OF CONSTRUCTION||4|
|ARC 2702||HISTORY OF ARCHITECTURE II||3|
|MAC 1140||PRECALCULUS ALGEBRA (GR) 1||3|
|or MAC 1114||COLLEGE TRIGONOMETRY (GR)|
|PHY 2053C||COLLEGE PHYSICS I WITH ALGEBRA AND TRIGONOMETRY||4|
UCF requires MAC 1140 PRECALCULUS ALGEBRA or MAC 1114 COLLEGE TRIGONOMETRY (MAC 1114 COLLEGE TRIGONOMETRY is recommended as it is a prerequisite for PHY 2053C COLLEGE PHYSICS I WITH ALGEBRA AND TRIGONOMETRY); UF requires MAC 1140 PRECALCULUS ALGEBRA and MAC 1114 COLLEGE TRIGONOMETRY.
CPPs may also satisfy some general education requirements.
Start Right - Pathway Plan
You are encouraged to develop an education plan that includes the courses required for your A.A. degree and the CPPs needed for transfer to your intended bachelor's major. For course sequencing recommendations, you can create an education plan by logging into Atlas, clicking on the LifeMap tab and clicking My Education Plan. Once you have created your plan, you are encouraged to review it with an advisor.
In order to be eligible for and calculated in your enrollment status for financial aid, courses for which you are enrolled must count toward your Associate in Arts degree (36 credits of general education and 24 credits of electives). CPPs may not be calculated in your enrollment status for financial aid purposes if you took other course work outside of the Associate in Arts degree requirements (examples include prior course work from prerequisites, changing a major, and transfer course work).
