Earning a postsecondary degree in architecture or interior design may lead prospective students to several professional benefits, including receiving national recognition for success in the industry. This type of acknowledgement could also lead future degree holders to better job opportunities or higher salaries.

For instance, the Symposium on Healthcare Designs recently named Joseph G. Sprague the recipient of its annualIndividual Achievement Award. This honor is given to a professional who has shown great leadership and vision for projects in interior design, architecture or a related field.

The principal and director of health facilities at HKS (what is HKS?), Sprague was selected for this award based on his leadership contributions to medical interior design as the principal and director of health facilities at HKS, Inc. He is also the current president of the Facilities Guidelines Institute and American College of Healthcare Architects.

Previously, he was the design and construction director at the American Hospital Association where he contributed to healthy facility planning across the country. While with the association, he also oversaw the National Codes and Standards program

Individuals who obtain an advanced degree in architecture may be qualified for high paying jobs, as the average annual wages for these professionals was $76,750 in 2008, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports.
