Students admitted to the MArch I program complete a full-time, three-plus-year, 96-credit curriculum that begins in the second session of the summer semester.
In the first year of the MArch I program, students acquire the fundamentals of visual and spatial design, conceptualization, problem solving, and material and environmental influences. In addition to design studio, students take introductory coursework in architectural history and theory, building technology, and representation.
In the second year, students join incoming MArch II students to complete a curriculum that includes advanced-design studios coupled with courses in contemporary theory, building technology, computational methods, design methodology and architectural electives.
In the third year, students complete a comprehensive architectural design project, a research-driven graduate diploma studio, along with courses in architectural research, professional practice, and additional architectural electives.
