 Serial Item Architecture Class Name Architecture Class Description Self Assessment Score
 1.Software Architecture SpecialtiesThis is an overview course that describes the major categories of knowledge/specialization within software   architecture. Each specialization is introduced and each module defines commonalities between specializations as well as differences. 7
 2.Software Architecture Development Methodologies and Processes The software architect participates in many phases of the software development life cycle (SDLC). This course will allow the student to understand common development cycles and their role in these processes. The course will cover the set up and management of development environments and give the learner tools to participate fully in the delivery of a solution.   Included is a robust comparison of key development methodologies and recommendations on when to use what method. 8
 3.Software Architecture Tools   In addition to design and communication tools, software architects use a variety of tools to create working solutions and participate in the development process. This course will introduce the student to the significant concepts of architecture tools and how they integrate with the SDLC. It will further give examples and reusable patterns for successful tool usage. 7
 4.Software Engineering for ArchitectsThe student will be introduced and work through advanced concepts in software engineering with a focus on the architect’s role in working with developers and software engineers. 7
 5.Services, Workflow and Messaging Service Oriented Architecture, messaging, workflow and other systems have become a major component of the architect’s toolset. This course will introduce common concepts and components of these solutions with a focus on providing the student with the ability to effectively use these systems for their organization. Reusable assets and patterns are provided where appropriate.  10
 6.Advanced Quality AttributesSoftware solutions must provide appropriate support for constraints and quality attributes across all IT systems. This course will give an advanced view of the software architect's responsibilities and opportunities for ensuring the appropriate quality attributes are represented in their solutions. 10 
 7.Advanced Stakeholder ManagementThe software architect works with large numbers of stakeholders including developers, management and project leadership. This is an advanced course on making these interactions and relationships fruitful. Focus of this course is on the primary stakeholders software architects deal with and their needs. Reusable assets such as stakeholder views are provided.  8
