- The Master of Architecture program is steeped in the tradition of design excellence that began at Howard University in 1911. The new M.Arch. curriculum includes five courses (15 credit hours across three lecture format and two studio courses) in a concentration, which initially focuses on Community Design and Planning.
- This concentration will build on the historic focus of the Department of Architecture which responded to changes in urban areas following the 1968 rebellions after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Washington, D.C. and the Georgia Avenue corridor, which bounds the Howard campus, were heavily impacted by the riots. Howard University and the Department of Architecture, specifically, responded by its charge to prepare "activist practitioners", a mission that will continue and be strengthened in the M.Arch. program.
- This program exposes students to a myriad of opportunities to design efficient and aesthetically pleasing built environments. Students explore a range of architectural typologies, tectonics, and settings and engage a broad perspective on the human environment. This program continues the longstanding tradition of the Department of Architecture to educate, train, and socialize students in a manner that prepares them to participate as leaders in architectural production, regardless of their individual architectural design career direction.
