Master of Architecture Curriculum

Master of Architecture Curriculum

In the Master of Architecture program, you’ll integrate active design practice with studying studio design, design media, and more as you grow and are mentored as a working design professional. During studio experiences, you’ll create work that responds to social and spatial conditions, design buildings that matter and forge your design identity. 

This interplay of education and practice provides you with a solid preparation for a career in design, a professional network, and the opportunity to meet the Architectural Experience Program (AXP) required to sit for licensure.
