Roger Williams University architecture program achieves reaccreditation

BRISTOL – The National Architectural Accrediting Board recently reaccredited the Master of Architecture program at Roger Williams University.

Not only did it achieve all 46 conditions required for the status but in five areas it met the criteria with distinction, according to the university.

The RWU School of Architecture, Art and Historic Preservation won praise from the accrediting agency for its use of the Firm in Residence Program, which provides opportunities for students to work with professionals, and for its Career Investment Program, which exposes students to professionals practicing architecture.

The five-member board team visited the university and school in March and released a 29-page report on its findings.
