Architecture stretches your artistic freedom and personal expression, and there is no right or wrong. The older you get, the better you get. You can practice the profession of architecture for as long as you want with big and small firms, working for others or working on your own project, with the role of project architect, designer, manager or consultant Once an Architect, always an Architect.

The variety of career options within the profession is incredible. With a little bit of extra classes, you can be any of these:

• Architect
