There are two distinct entry points into our professionally accredited Master of Architecture degree program. Candidates holding a bachelor’s degree in a discipline other than architecture pursue a 3 year Master of Architecture. Candidates with a pre-professional BS or BA in Architecture or Environmental Design pursue a 2 year Master of Architecture. In the United States, most registration boards require a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a prerequisite for licensure. The M. Arch is NAAB-accredited degree. See the NAAB Accreditation section on the MYARCH Page for additional information.

The Master of Architecture program is a STEM designated degree program.

Candidates holding an accredited architecture degree, or a degree in an allied design discipline, who wish to pursue advanced study in design computing (both research and applications) or the history and theory of architecture, should apply to the Master of Science (MS) in Architecture degree program.

The concurrent Master of Architecture / Master of Landscape Architecture program emphasizes the significant role interdisciplinary education and practice plays in the mission and vision of the College of Built Environments. This degree program provides a formal mechanism that allows incoming and current students in the Master of Architecture (M.Arch) and Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA) programs to study both disciplines in a rigorous, efficient and structured manner.
