Significant Information: Architects, Except Landscape and Naval
- More than 1 in 5 architects was self-employed—about three times the proportion for all professional and related occupations.
- Licensing requirements include a professional degree in
architecture, a period of practical training, and passing all divisions
of the Architect Registration Examination.
- Architecture graduates may face competition, especially for
jobs in the most prestigious firms; opportunities will be best for
those with experience working for a firm while still in school and for
those with knowledge of computer-aided design and drafting
