M.ARCH 2 Graduate Degree Program

2 Years (5 Terms)

SCI-Arc's M.Arch 2 program is a two-year, five-term, professional Master of Architecture program, accredited by the the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) and open to applicants with a minimum of a four year degree in Architecture, or its equivalent abroad. This program is similar to the M.Arch 1 program, but is shorter in length and available only to students with a prior undergraduate degree in architecture. It requires attendance for the fall and spring terms of the first year, and the fall, spring and summer terms of the final year.

The aim of the M.Arch 2 program is the reappraisal of architecture, and is specifically designed to build upon and reconsider knowledge gained from a prior undergraduate degree in Architecture. Students are introduced to an advanced critical perspective on contemporary architectural issues as a tool with which to examine the complex and shifting relationship between architecture and cultural, political, economic and social change.

M.Arch 2, Design Studio Work

The program investigates the contemporary architectural platform and operates as a laboratory to identify new possibilities for the integration of emerging techniques and technologies. Students learn the latest developments in fabrication and gain an understanding of design methodologies and their historical and contemporary contexts. Upon completing the three term core sequence, students are able to choose from vertical studios and elective seminars that either continue the focus of their core studies or broaden the scope of their education.

Students complete their studies with the presentation, in a public exhibition, of a thoroughly researched independent architectural thesis.
