Miami's graduate program in architecture accepts students from two different preparation backgrounds. Students from pre-professional undergraduate architecture programs who wish to complete their professional education will apply to the M. Arch. II program. Those who have earned an undergraduate degree in fields other than architecture will apply to the M. Arch. III program.Craig Hinrichs Associate Professor of Architecture.


The Master of Architecture (M. Arch.) is a graduate degree that is accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB). 

Programme Structure

M. Arch. III: 3½-Year Professional Program

(105 credit-hour track)

The three-year professional program is designed for students with an undergraduate degree other than architecture. The program was established to bring in students from diverse academic backgrounds, offering a variety of perspectives, different intellectual viewpoints, experience, and maturity that can significantly enrich the teaching and learning culture of the department.

In the first year of the three-year program students learn the fundamentals of architectural design, technology, history, and theory, and also develop visual analysis and graphic communication skills. 

M. Arch. II: 2-Year Professional Program

(60 credit-hour track)

The two-year professional program is designed for students with a preprofessional NAAB accredited architectural degree or its international equivalent.
