Course info


The graduate curriculum is structured to allow flexibility and to accommodate diverse student needs. This is accomplished by offering a combination of choices of studies available within the various program options. The M.Arch. 2 and 3 options result in the conferring of a first professional degree, fully accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board. For details see />
Central to the academic structure of these several options is the design laboratory. The various design laboratories are oriented toward formulation and resolution of design questions at a broad range of scales. In addition to fostering a mastery of the design process, the design laboratory is intended to cultivate a foundation for design through the study of concepts and principles of form generation, through education of an environmental awareness and aesthetic judgment, through study of the syntax of architectural language, and through the development of technical knowledge of the processes of fabrication and construction. These learning-oriented laboratories encourage the use of previously acquired knowledge, skills, and experience gained in the architectural profession and in other academic disciplines.

M.Arch.2, Advanced Professional Studies:

The first year of study continues the student's professional building design education and related technical and history/theory studies. The second year is reserved for preparation of a design thesis demonstrative of the student's academic accomplishment and professional potential. Students in this program typically complete 54 (min.) credit hours, normally requiring at least two academic years (four semesters) of study. Students in the M.Arch.2 program may elect to enroll at the Washington-Alexandria Center for all or a portion of their required studies and/or may spend a semester participating in the Europe Study Abroad Travel Program or in residence at the Center for European Studies and Architecture (CESA) in Riva San Vitale, Switzerland.
