About

The practice of architecture in the 21st century is increasingly driven by heightened cultural, social and environmental issues. 

Overview

Situated within the oldest technological institute in the us, the program draws upon a vast resource of science and engineering expertise in support of the school’s commitment to architecture as a project of interdisciplinary and social engagement. We envision the future of architecture transformed by a new generation of design research, creativity, innovation and new methodologies in the service of a socially vibrant and sustainable built environment.

The master of architecture graduate program is a three and one half year program leading to a NAAB accredited professional degree in architecture. The program is open to applicants with a baccalaureate or equivalent degree in any discipline or field of study. Students come from the full range of liberal arts, design, science and engineering disciplines and are able to show evidence of analytical and creative skills. The first year of the curriculum constitutes the core foundation of design, technology, history and critical theory courses. The second two years of the curriculum build on the foundation with integrated advanced design studios and seminars.
