The Master of Architecture (M.Arch.) program is an accredited professional graduate program for those with an undergraduate degree who wish to pursue professional studies in architecture, as a prerequisite to becoming a registered architect.

The full program is 119 credits. Students entering the program with an undergraduate degree normally take three and one-half years of full-time study to complete the requirements. Students holding a pre-professional architecture degree will be considered for advanced placement. An undergraduate degree in a field related to architecture may be advantageous in reducing the length of the program, but it is not a required prerequisite. Demonstration of interest and aptitude in the field occurs as part of the application process. At the time of application, the School's Admissions Committee will determine the extent of advanced placement on the basis of the applicant's undergraduate transcript and portfolio.
