This 6-year professional degree pairs the B.E.D.A. program with two years of graduate study. It includes courses in a selected interest area, a thesis project, and LEED accreditation.

Professional electives, along with courses in architectural theory, will enable you to expand your knowledge in a selected interest area. The M.Arch. degree includes a thesis project -- an extensively researched investigation of a particular design topic.

Courses in professional practice, environmental law, management, policy, and business provide an additional understanding of the expanding professional contexts in which architects practice. Like the B.Arch. program, the M.Arch degree requires LEED accreditation.
