Construction Management Bachelor of Science (BS)

Build Your Career with a Construction Management Degree

The Bachelor of Science in Construction Management (BSCM) enables students to become a certified construction manager, along with many other job opportunities.

The construction management degree is a Prospect Program for accreditation by the American Council for Construction Education (ACCE). To become a Certified Construction Manager (CCM), the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) requires a combination of an accredited degree in Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC), Responsible in Charge (RIC) experience hours, and certification exams administered by the Construction Manager Certification Institute (CMCI).

The four-year BSCM program is intended for students who will pursue a career as a certified construction manager or advanced study in other fields related to architecture and the built environment. To this end, Marywood students who have earned a Construction Management degree are eligible for 25 credits of advanced standing in the Master of Interior Architecture program.

Focused on acquiring the skills needed to manage the construction of the built environment, this degree option trains students in construction knowledge, business practices, advanced building technologies, and environmental science. Construction Management students benefit from an integrative curriculum that requires:

  • Eight sequential semesters of construction management and building technology courses, steadily growing in complexity from surveying to cost estimating to a comprehensive capstone project
  • Business courses, including accounting, business management, economics, and law
  • Courses in basic and organizational communications
  • Program electives from an extensive list of business, communications, or environmental science courses
