In a May 2006 report prepared for The American Institute of Architects, An Assessment of Population, Construction, and Alternative Professions and Their Relationship to Architect Licensure and Registration Levels, Minnesota is listed as one of the states where registrations are increasing. Across the board, however, the rise and fall in the numbers of interns sitting for licensure exams is dependent on how well the construction industry and therefore also the architecture industry are doing. A good economy means increased numbers and poorer economy means fewer numbers.
Is the major roadblock or deterrent to becoming licensed simply a financial one?
Does the increased cost of earning a professional degree in architecture exacerbate this problem?
