Master of Architecture (MArch)

Why choose Architecture?

Outstanding teachers, study-abroad options, innovative courses with practicing architects and leading-edge workshop facilities are just a few of the benefits you'll receive as one of our architecture students.

Our approach engages the contemporary challenges facing the discipline of architecture, with experts in critical practice, digital design and fabrication, building performance, cultural theory and architectural history. With the completion of our Architectural Studies Minor as part of your undergraduate degree, you will gain a year’s worth of course work toward our accredited three-year Master of Architect degree and be on the path toward becoming a registered architect. Undergraduate study is required - you cannot enter the MArch program directly from high school. The most up-to-date admission requirements can be found at

We are committed to research and teaching that prepares architects for the future through responsive architecture, generative design, digital fabrication and integrated techniques - to be critical thinkers who engage with emerging forms of design practice in an increasingly interconnected design environment.

– Jason S. Johnson, MArch — Associate Professor, Digital Design
