SCI-Arc’s graduate programs propel contemporary experimentation and formal explorations, and expand the boundaries of conventional architectural practice to offer students an alternative education that prioritizes collaboration between students, faculty, and leading professionals. All graduate programs are led by professionals actively engaged in architectural practice areas ranging from design and engineering to visual and cultural studies, who bring the world’s most pressing challenges to the built environment into the classrooms of SCI-Arc. Students work together to explore and prototype responses to contemporary architectural issues that are grounded in the history, theory, and professional practice of architecture.
For the past nearly 50 years, SCI-Arc’s collaborative, immersive environment for students, theorists, and practitioners has empowered the next generation of architects. The graduate programs at SCI-Arc attract an internationally diverse student body to speculate and resolve imminent issues facing architecture, starting with present challenges.
