The Master of Architecture (MArch) is an accredited first professional degree. It fulfills the professional degree requirements for registration as an architect and is designed for students entering either with no academic training in architecture or a four-year bachelor’s “pre-arch” degree who wish to enter the profession of architecture. The Master of Architecture degree's STEM designation from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board also opens up new research and funding resources, and enables additional professional opportunities for international students.
As part of the program, students may obtain one or more of nine Stackable Graduate Certificates by completing the specialization requirements. MArch students may also complete an optional, transcriptable Graduate Certificate in Latin American Architecture.
Effective in Fall 2020, students who are accepted to The University of Austin School of Architecture will be admitted to the 3-year M Arch degree program or the 2-year MArch degree program with advanced standing. The Graduate Adviser evaluates each student's application and determines eligibility for advanced standing based on the applicant's background in architecture.
MASTER OF ARCHITECTURE (3-YEAR+)
The ‘Vertical Studio‘ sequence is specifically designed for graduate students pursuing a first professional degree in architecture. The first design studios are taught in a format that combines students of differing degrees of skill and experience. Problems are set in order to maximize opportunities for learning and idea dissemination at all levels, from beginning to intermediate, allowing students to progress at a rate in line with their background. Topics cover contemporary issues and essential techniques of architectural design.
