The Bachelor of Architecture, a 5-year programme accredited by the Council of Architecture, prepares students for a career as a licensed architect in India.

This unique programme at JSAA is divided into two parts: the Major and the Minor. In the Major, students learn about materials and making, about design thinking. They explore the social, historical, political, economic, and technological interfaces of architecture, and also get to collaborate with students from some of the best architecture schools globally. The Minor areas of study are carefully designed to provide students with additional skillsets and help them develop abilities that can be applied across industries and sectors.
