Professional Master of Architecture (M.Arch.)

Program Overview

The professional Master of Architecture (M.ARCH.) program is designed for students with undergraduate baccalaureate degrees in fields other than architecture and for those holding a non-professional baccalaureate degree in architecture. The three-year (seven-semester) program helps prepare students to become leaders in the profession of architecture. Students enroll in a two-year core curriculum that helps prepare them with techniques, principles, histories, theories, and technologies related to the discipline of architecture. In the final year of the program the students develop a thesis project.

The program is a companion to our more than century-old accredited Bachelor of Architecture program and enjoys the curricular explorations and experiences that have gone into designing and maintaining a cutting-edge professional architectural education. We enrolled the inaugural cohort of students in Fall 2013. The M.ARCH. program has been granted accreditation by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) in March 2017.
