Master of Architecture
Degree Requirements for Professional M.Arch.
This 102-credit program consists of a 72-credit core and an options sequence of 30 credits including 12 studio and 18 elective credits. Students are expected to complete the core sequence in a minimum of two years. Before registering for courses, all students must consult with the graduate advisor to plan an appropriate course of study.
Students must submit a portfolio of design work at completion of the core courses. The portfolio will be reviewed in connection with advising students on their further program of study.
Core courses in the M.Arch. program represent the minimum background necessary to meet NAAB standards. If students demonstrate that they have previously completed equivalent course work, degree credit requirements may be reduced to less than the 102 credits required for the program. To remain in good academic standing, students must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 in graduate courses. Students must repeat any design studio course in which they receive a grade of C. A grade of C+ in any design studio must be followed by a subsequent grade sufficient to raise the annual cumulative design studio GPA to 2.75. Incomplete (I) grades for studio and prerequisite courses must be removed before students will be permitted to register for continuing course work in the program.
