HU Architecture Program Remains Accredited

The National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) Inc., recently reaffirmed the accreditation of the Hampton University Master of Architecture program for a six-year term.

The visiting team from the accreditation board noted the development of HU architecture students in their report stating, “The students seem to understand their roles as future graduates, emerging professionals, and future practitioners.” In addition the report also referenced the students’ leadership skills by stating, “they realize the importance of finding new solutions to complex problems, likewise, devising new research methods to arrive at new conclusions.”

The HU Department of Architecture is the only accredited architecture program in Hampton Roads, Va. and one of only three accredited architecture programs in Virginia.
