Master of Advanced Architectural Design (MAAD)

The post-professional M Arch degree is a design-oriented program that offers students with an accredited B. Arch. degree both the opportunity and the resources for personal and professional growth in one of several areas of specialization: sustainable design, preservation, architectural design at an advanced level, urban design, and interdisciplinary studies.

The curriculum can usually be completed in three or four semesters. Graduates of the MAAD program are able to enter—or re-enter—the profession with significantly enhanced qualifications. They are able to offer these enhanced skills to governmental, institutional, and business organizations, and they are better able to contemplate teaching architecture at the college level.

The MAAD is not a NAAB accredited degree. International applicants interested pursuing licensure in the United States should apply to the M Arch I degree program.
