Two Year, Professional Degree

The Master of Architecture (M.Arch 2) program is a 60-credit-hour professional degree program for students with a four-year undergraduate pre-professional degree in architecture. Select students graduating from CUArch with a four-year B.S. in Architecture are eligible for advanced standing, thereby reducing graduate study from four semesters (two years) to three semesters (one-and-a-half years).

Students enrolled in the Master of Architecture program, as well as those in the Master of Architectural Studies program, pursue a concentration in one of five areas including Sacred Space/Cultural Studies, Technology and Media in Architecture and Interiors, Real Estate Development, Urban Practice, and Classical Architecture and Urbanism.
