Studio One

One-Year Master of Architecture

About the Program

STUDIO ONE is a one-year post-professional design studio intended for those who have a professional (accredited Bachelor of Architecture) degree, and who wish to continue to explore current design issues in a stimulating, rigorous, and experimental studio setting. Students who complete the program will receive a non-accredited Master of Architecture degree.

The year-long studio is at the core of the program, integrated with seminars and lectures in design theory, history, digital applications, and building technology. Students also have the opportunity to enroll in other elective classes in the College of Environmental Design. The studio director is joined by a team of several other faculty from the department and the college.


Note: There is also the possibility to apply for the one-year program as an independent design scholar. These proposals require a high level of focus, and should be addressed to specific faculty interests. Please make note in your application if you would like to be considered for admission as an independent design scholar.


Applications for this 2019-2010 course are now being accepted. Interested students should apply online at, specifying the one-year Masters of Architecture option in the College of Environmental Design.
