Upon completion of the core sequence, students progress into the three-semester advanced options studio sequence. Students admitted to the School's four-semester MArch 2 program enter directly into this sequence, joining students from the MArch 3 and MArch 2+ programs.

Taught by the School's permanent faculty and by renowned visiting professors, the advanced studios nurture the initial concepts introduced in the core sequence while allowing students to tailor their education to their own interests. All students are expected to understand the intimate relationship between architecture, place, and culture. 

A wide variety of studio options are offered, ranging from classic modern architectural topics to other more experimental studies. All students must take a minimum of one comprehensive studio. They also may choose to specialize in sustainability, urban architecture, landscape relationships, or technical concerns. To make this specialization possible, students can take one studio from the offerings in Urban Design, Landscape, Fabrication, or Design/Build, allowing them to expand their understanding of related fields.
