Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Architecture - Accelerated Master's Program degree offered by the University of Arizona allows eligible students enrolled in the Bachelor of Landscape Architecture (BLA), Bachelor of Architecture (B Arch) or Sustainable Built Environments (SBE) degree programs to begin working toward a professional degree, a Master of Science, Architecture (MS Arch), as early as the third or fourth year. 

Subsequent to being admitted to the Accelerated Master's Program, BLA, B Arch, and SBE students in their third or fourth years begin to take graduate courses in the MS Arch program curriculum. Twelve of the graduate units earned may be used to count toward both degrees. Additional credit taken may satisfy core competencies for Advance Standing with approval and A or B grades earned.

Department

The School of Architecture is devoted to a professional education with a sensibility honed by the conditions of an extreme climate. In our Sonoran Desert setting we teach students to design for extreme conditions in accordance with principles of sustainability. Students and researchers then build on that knowledge in application to other climates.

Our students learn by doing. From building and breaking model structures to develop an understanding of building physics to design-build studios in which students build furniture, shelters, and small buildings, learners thrive in this hands-on environment. Students grow in ways that prepare them for the later challenges of professional practice in an ever-changing built environment.
