Tuesday Tour Day — Boston Architectural College

pro-bac-12-13Today, we are taking a look at Boston Architectural College, in Boston, Mass.

The Boston Architectural College (BAC) is the largest independent, accredited college of spatial design in New England. Located in the heart of Boston’s historic Back Bay neighborhood, the BAC offers programs in Architecture, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture, Sustainable Design, Historic Preservation, Architectural Technology and Design Computing. The BAC’s unique, practice based model of learning allows students the opportunity to acquire significant professional experience while pursuing their degree, and BAC graduates are regularly cited as being the most prepared for the challenges of today’s increasingly globalized design profession.

A shared foundation year gives students broad exposure to all of the major design disciplines prior to concentrating on their specific area of interest. The comprehensive integration of professional practice into academics gives students a significant head start on their careers, and results in students already being experienced designers with substantial professional portfolios at graduation. On average, 80% of BAC students are employed in design on the day they graduate.

The BAC’s urban campus is ideally located to take advantage of all of the opportunities offered by the city of Boston. Nearby are many museums and cultural attractions, several other colleges, Fenway Park, and many of the city’s best shops and restaurants. In addition, many of Boston’s largest and most prominent firms are located within easy walking distance or a short subway ride. The city itself becomes integral to the BAC student’s study of design.
