Master of Architecture: MArch 2

This four-semester program is for strong architectural design students beginning their studies who hold baccalaureate degrees in architecture (a BS in Architecture, typically, or a professional degree from outside of the United States). Students are considered for placement in the MArch 2 curriculum on the basis of design portfolio evaluation and the extent of their undergraduate architectural studies. Placement in this curriculum is highly selective. The MArch 2 program begins with the final comprehensive core studio (ARCH 419) and concludes with the Degree Project. This 75-credit program leads to a professionally accredited Master of Architecture degree.
