The Online Track of the Master of Architecture is a 2-year professionally accredited degree designed for students with a background in architecture. Our innovative approach to education embeds professional practice into the curriculum, so employment in architecture is integral to the learning experience.

The program’s unique low-residency model allows students to work full time while earning their degree. Our online coursework has the same rigor as in our traditional classrooms, and a series of 8-day residencies in Boston bring the courses to life and build connections between classmates and instructors.

The Highlights

  • The BAC's program is the first primarily online Master of Architecture in the country to be accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB).
  • Students who enter with an undergraduate degree in architecture or design and a satisfactory portfolio can earn their Master of Architecture in just 2 years.
  • By engaging in professional practice and enrolling in NCARB's Architectural Experience Program (AXP), students may be eligible to take their licensing exams while they earn their degree.
  • Students can choose to take each semester online or onsite to fit their schedule.
  • Students finish their program with a thesis that has personal significance and larger value to the discipline of architecture.
