The Master of Architecture (M.Arch.) at NJIT’s Hillier College is a professional STEM-designated program, fully accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB). The 90-credit program is intended for applicants who have earned a bachelor’s degree in architecture or a field other than architecture and who wish to earn a degree leading towards professional licensure as an architect.

A shortened program is available through advanced placement for applicants who have a pre-professional Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts in Architecture or another field directly related to architecture, or students who have a Bachelor of Architecture from a non-NAAB accredited program. Full- and part-time degree options are available.
