Degree Requirements: M.Arch

Our Master of Architecture (M.Arch) program is a studio-intensive degree that takes a critical view of design, theory, and production.

You’ll supplement your coursework with a diverse selection of electives in history/theory, criticism, structures, environmental and construction technology, urbanism, sustainable design, computation, and digital fabrication. Then you’ll bring it all together in a design thesis during your final academic year. 

The M.Arch degree requires the successful completion of 99 credit hours (60 credit hours for those with advanced standing) and all required coursework.
