Congratulations to the University of Maine at Augusta's Bachelor of Architecture program for successfully completing the six-year process of professional accreditation.

“We are thrilled to achieve accreditation,” said Eric Stark, Architecture Program Coordinator and Associate Professor of Architecture. “The key to our success is our mission of providing a small, integrated and hands-on program that focuses on people: our students, our faculty, and our community partners. We are very pleased that NAAB sees the value of our program’s teaching, scholarship, creative work, research, and service to the state of Maine.” 

“This is a testament to our faculty, staff, and students who have built this program over 32 years from an initial concept of a two-year associate’s degree program into the only five-year professionally accredited architecture degree program at a public university north of New York City,” stated UMA President Rebecca Wyke. “This is a significant milestone for the Architecture Program and our institution.”
