M-ARCH: Master of Architecture

SCI-Arc’s M.Arch 2 program is a two-year, five-term, professional Master of Architecture program, accredited by the the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB). Students are introduced to an advanced critical perspective on contemporary architectural issues as a tool with which to examine the complex and shifting relationship between architecture and cultural, political, economic and social change. The program investigates the contemporary architectural platform and operates as a laboratory to identify new possibilities for the integration of emerging techniques and technologies. Students learn the latest developments in fabrication and gain an understanding of design methodologies and their historical and contemporary contexts. Upon completing the three term core sequence, students are able to choose from vertical studios and elective seminars that either continue the focus of their core studies or broaden the scope of their education.
