MArch 2 Curriculum

This four-semester program is for strong architectural design students beginning their studies in either a fall or spring semester who hold baccalaureate degrees in architecture (a BS in Architecture, typically, or a professional degree from outside the United States). Students are considered for placement in the MArch 2 curriculum on the basis of design portfolio evaluation and the extent of their undergraduate architectural studies. Placement in this curriculum is highly selective. The MArch 2 program includes advanced design studios leading to more advanced elective work and the Degree Project. This 60-credit program leads to a professionally accredited Master of Architecture degree.
