Earning a bachelor's degree in Architecture, also known as a B.Arch degree, is perhaps a dream career for some of you. After earning this degree, there are many job opportunities, but some of you might be in doubt whether B.Arch is a good course to select? B.Arch is a professional degree course, and you can even do higher studies in design programs. You can set up your architecture firm or even you can work in partnerships. Central government/state government/private firms also provide job opportunities for those with an Architecture degree. If you are more interested in the teaching profession than taking up a private job, that is also available now, but you might need a master's degree/Ph.D in Architecture if you wish to take the teaching profession. Anyway, this is an exciting career for aspiring candidates.
