Second year: training
This covers all stages of design and is taught through constructive project work. Contextualisation from ideas and materials to construction management logistics, sketches, improvisations, refinement of presentation skills and broader historical and building studies contexts.
Third year: practical application
Design projects, individual theme selection for degree qualification, required electives, general studies and thesis.
Modularization during the studies is a study structure, in which courses such as lectures, exercises, practical internships, excursions, excursions or seminars about certain topics are combined in modules. The structure of a module is determined by the competence, which is to be achieved upon completion of the module.
The module manual entails information on the duration, credits, type of examination, requirements, study results, workload, type of learning, content, literature, and the representative of the module of a degree course. Further information can be found in the guideline on modularization and credit point awarding of the Bund-Länder commission. The module overview and the study content can be downloaded in form of a PDF.

Graduates from the Bachelor of Arts programme in Architecture are qualified to take on professional roles throughout all scales of the fee structures for architects and engineer regulations (HOAI) within architectural and planning offices. In addition to traditional roles in architecture, new career opportunities arise in property management, building administration, building management, project management and project development, visualisation and animation.
The programme has a practical application and conveys a high level of general knowledge, specialist knowledge as well as communication skills and the ability to work within a team.
Upon completion of this short and relatively general programme, students have the opportunity to either directly enter into the profession or continue their studies within a Masters programme. The University of Applied Science Frankfurt am Main offers a consecutive Master of Arts programme in Architecture Design and Construction. A Masters degree enables graduates to join the Chamber of Commerce for Architecture.
