How do I become an architect?

To become a licensed architect, you must meet three standards (the three “Es): education, experience and exam. First, you will need to gain a professional degree in architecture from an accredited higher-education architecture program; second, you will need to complete an internship (working under the supervision of a licensed architect); and third, you will need to pass the seven-part ARE (Architect Registration Exam). After completing the three "Es," you are a "licensed" architect. The entire path to licensure typically requires eight to ten years to complete.
