In the United States, most state registration boards require a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a prerequisite for licensure. Drexel University’s Architecture Program receives accreditation through the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), the only agency authorized to accredit U.S. professional degree programs in architecture.
