We offer two NAAB-accredited M.Arch professional degree tracks for students who have earned bachelor’s degrees – the two-year track for students with architecture and design backgrounds, and the three-year track for students with backgrounds in unrelated disciplines.
Innovative studios, world-class facilities, and real-world projects combine to provide KU M.Arch graduates with the technical expertise, critical insights, and professional experiences required to become architects on the leading edge of an ever-changing profession.
Our collaborative studio culture will challenge and inspire you to push against the limits of design and practice to imagine alternative futures.
Now more than ever, architects are required to design not only for function and visual refinement, but also with an applied, evidence-based understanding of how the built environment affects the health of people, communities, and the natural world.
Career preparation is integrated into every aspect of the Architecture (2 or 3-year) program at University of Kansas.
Beyond the real-world professional experiences in our industry and community-engaged studios, the architecture department hosts lectures, workshops, portfolio reviews, career fairs, firm visits, and networking events.
Longstanding relationships with firms and companies worldwide provide internship opportunities locally, across the country, and around the globe. Each year, KU architecture graduates leverage internship experiences into careers right out of school.
