The job description of an architect may vary depending on the employer or their specialization. Generally speaking, architects meet with their prospective client where they determine the scope and requirements of the project. From there, the architect will give a cost and time estimate, and the client will decide whether or not they want to move forward. Once everything has been agreed upon, the architect will draw up a detailed rendering of a house plan or business office building, either hand-drawn or through a computer program such as CADD.

Cost of Architecture Programs:

“An undergraduate degree in architecture can cost between $15,000-$60,000 annually including the cost of tuition, books, and other associated fees. Graduate(master’s) programs can cost anywhere between $14,000 to $38,000 per year.”
