Master of Architecture (5-year) Curriculum
The core of the curriculum for students enrolled in the five-year path is a sequence of design studios composing approximately one-third of the total degree requirements. Students also complete sequences in graphics, structures, building construction, environmental technology, and architectural history. They must meet a study abroad requirement, and take electives. Course-work in site planning, urban design, and professional practice completes the professional content. In addition, students are expected to complete coursework in a variety of academic disciplines, reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of architecture. These general education requirements include courses in mathematics, physics, English, communications, humanities and Western civilization, and a variety of other fields. In the last year of study, students chose a Final Year Option path.
