The School of Architecture professional curriculum leads to a Master of Architecture (M.Arch) degree—a professional degree program in architecture fully accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board NAAB). The M.Arch degree is comprised of 42 credits taken over three semesters. Courses include design studios; advanced theory and technical courses; and graduate electives intended to emphasize the development of a critical position with regard to the environment and architecture.

The design studio forms the core of architectural education, and every student makes a significant design studio commitment each semester including a Comprehensive Design Studio, an Advanced Architectural Design Studio, and the Masters Studio Project—an individual research/design studio project. The Master of Architecture professional degree is a Plan C program (professional paper or project plan).
