Professional Degree Programs
Eligibility to the M.Arch program is determined by the applicant's education background.
The M.Arch 1 program is open to students who hold a bachelor’s degree that does not meet the M.Arch 2 eligibility criteria. The M.Arch 1 program stresses excellence in design and provides students with a solid intellectual base of knowledge of the discipline, history, theory, technology, and professional practice of architecture.
The M.Arch 2 program is open to students who hold a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture, a Bachelor of Science in Architecture, or a Bachelor of Architecture degree. The M.Arch 2 program is specifically designed for students who are looking to focus their architectural education on contemporary tools, techniques, and technologies and to expand their experience in digital design, fabrication, and critical thinking.
