    What is the Master of Science in Architecture? As a leader in architecture education, we benchmark trends in the industry and forecast the skills and curricula future architects will need.  As a result, we created the Master of Science in Architecture degree - an intense, 3-term (10 month) program which allows for in-depth research and study in the emerging areas of conservation, design and health, digital technologies, and material systems.

    This degree is for B.Arch. or M.Arch. graduates (or equivalent degrees in related fields) interested in pursuing design research careers in education or leadership in expanded architectural practices.

    Join us for our online information sessions taking place November 15 and December 11 to learn more and please forward this on to individuals you feel would be interested.

    • The Master of Science in Architecture concentration in Conservation (MS_C) offers participants an innovative approach to connecting physical, social, and ecological contexts as a means of probing architecture’s active role in the construction of culture. This concentration expands conventional notions of historic preservation to encompass the multiple scales that shape the cultural and environmental heritage of a community and its region.

    • The Master of Science in Architecture concentration in Design and Health (MS_DH) examines interiors, buildings, cities, and territories that promote a critical assessment of existing design practices. Since the built environment has a powerful impact on our bodies, fitness, and well-being, students in the MS_DH concentration pursue new opportunities for design and architecture to positively influence health infrastructure by addressing inequalities, while drawing from numerous allied fields through design.

    • The Master of Science in Architecture concentration in Digital Technologies (MS_DT) focuses on cutting-edge research in advanced fabrication and digital design techniques and provides hands-on engagement with technology while challenging participants to explore design theories and methodologies poised to have revolutionary effects on future work in the field. The MS_DT concentration offers project-based research led by innovative faculty in the college’s world class Digital Fabrication Lab. Learn more about Digital Technologies >
    • The Master of Science in Architecture concentration in Material Systems (MS_MS) provides students an opportunity to pursue architectural innovation within a context where design, composition and modes of production for scales from wearables to buildings have radically changed due to an increasing sophistication and pervasiveness of computationally driven design and fabrication technologies.
