The M.Arch Architecture program at Roger Williams University prepares students to enter and advance both the discipline and the profession of architecture. Students achieve a depth of understanding of the components of architectural practice and of the diverse nature and variety of roles for architects in relation to other fields.
The program encourages the mastery and skillful integration of environmental, social, historical, artistic, technical and philosophical concerns into carefully developed designs that enhance their context through the region, the site, spaces, and detail. Our students and faculty embrace the opportunity to express human values through the design of the built environment.
- Career Investment Program - Available to all M.Arch students, the Career Investment Program provides a paid internship or assistantship each year you are in the program.
- Teaching Firms in Residence - Graduate architectural design studios are taught by a group of lead architects from a top firm each semester.
- Study Abroad Opportunities - Take advantage of an opportunity to study abroad in top destinations like Barcelona and Beijing as a graduate student all without losing time toward your degree.
- Women's Leadership Network - RWU is committed to furthering the work of women in the architecture field with this innovative network that provides mentoring, guest lectures, and more.
