Three-Year M.Arch Curriculum Guide

Our Three-Year M.Arch program is designed for students with undergraduate degrees other than architecture.

A four-semester period of study is required to complete a maximum of 58 preparatory credit hours prior to beginning the remaining 46 credit hours (students join our Two-Year M.Arch program). The actual number of preparatory credit hours required depends on an analysis of an individual's application.
