The Onsite Master of Architecture Track centers on concurrent design practice and academic study. Students work in classrooms, in communities, and in local firms to examine the social and cultural contexts of their work. As they advance, students develop a personal design philosophy and methods of working while mastering structures and environmental systems. At defined intervals, students submit a design portfolio with evidence of their learning and competencies in both practice and academic study in order to progress. All graduate students complete a three-semester-long design thesis process to explore an idea that has personal significance and larger value to the community and to the discipline of architecture.
