Master of Architecture II Post-Professional Program

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs

Within the Master of Architecture programs, there is the opportunity to develop a curriculum specific to an applicant’s interest if there is corresponding expertise in the faculty. This degree requires 30 credits, including the required methods seminars. The Master’s Project or Thesis consists of 3 to 9 credits. The remaining credits are taken as concentration electives chosen with the faculty adviser and are detailed on a Plan of Study filed in the first semester.  Specific concentrations and Plans of Study may be prescribed by the School of Architecture. 

In addition to the Institute-wide academic regulations outlined in this catalog, all student drawings and models created as part of the instructional program are the property of the Institute until the instructor releases them. The School of Architecture, at its option, may retain certain works for academic purposes.  The M.Arch.II is not a professional degree and will not lead to the establishment of a license to practice architecture in the United States or an NCARB certificate.



This degree requires 30 credit hours.


  1. In certain cases, prescribed plans of study may require master’s thesis or project credits in the spring semester only.
