M.Arch Program

Master of Architecture

The three-year Master of Architecture program is designed for those who have earned a bachelor’s degree in a field other than architecture. The program requires completion of 72 units of coursework in six semesters of enrollment. Design is the core of the basic curriculum, and students enroll in an architectural design studio each semester.

M.Arch with Advanced Standing

The opportunity to complete the Master of Architecture program in two years is granted to students with an exceptional undergraduate record in a focused pre-professional degree, including the B.A. or B.S. with a major in architecture. The advanced standing is at the discretion of the admissions committee, based on both studio work and academic achievement.

Each student’s undergraduate curriculum will be compared against the basic curriculum of the Master of Architecture program. Students who have completed many of the required courses or their equivalents in their undergraduate program will have extensive options for elective units in their graduate curriculum.
