Master of Architecture (M.Arch.)

The M.Arch. is a NAAB-accredited program for students with undergraduate degrees in Architecture or other fields who wish to become licensed architects. Graduate student research opportunities explore many emerging facets of Architecture.

Summary

As an Architecture school within a research university, we are a platform for innovation. Our emphasis on research faculty offers students the opportunity to collaborate in growing areas from nanotechnology to augmented and virtual reality, and to explore the frontiers of robotics and digital fabrication. Our program objectives are grounded in professional accreditation requirements.

  • Build abstract relationships and understand the impact of ideas based on the study and analysis of multiple theoretical, social, political, economic, cultural and environmental contexts.
  • Use a diverse range of skills to think about and convey architectural ideas, including writing, investigating, speaking, drawing and modeling.
  • Comprehend the technical aspects of design, systems and materials and be able to apply that comprehension to architectural solutions considering their impact on the environment.
  • Demonstrate the ability to synthesize a wide range of variables into an integrated design solution.
  • Understand business principles for the practice of Architecture, including management, advocacy, and the need to act legally, ethically and critically for the good of the client, society and the public.
