Education 

Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY, US, MArch, Architecture

The Master of Architecture, a first-professional degree, is a NAAB accredited, STEM, 84-credit, three-year (or 56 credit, two year advanced standing) program that maintains a mission to train students as leaders in the professional practice of architecture with substantive methods of design and inquiry. The program is intended for students holding a four-year undergraduate, non-professional degree in any field. Applicants with degrees from a four-year, BSc in Architecture or BScEng in Architecture may qualify for Advanced Standing (AS).

This program aims to expand a student’s undergraduate education (architecture, design, or non-design related) by imbuing them with the disciplinary and technical precision to engage in evolving design methods, design research, design thinking, and professional practice. Central to our mission as educators, the Department of Graduate Architecture and Urban Design (GAUD) is committed to a balance of knowledge and understanding, enhancing our student’s individual capacities to ask often difficult and challenging questions facing the profession and discipline; specifically through design and with audiences outside of architecture and urban design.

Awards 

National Professional Fraternity for Architecture and the Allied Arts Alpha Rho Chi Medal, Award

Since 1931, the Bronze Alpha Rho Chi Medal has recognized graduating architecture students for their leadership and service and what they offer the future of the profession. Alpha Rho Chi believes strong leaders are just as essential as strong designers. The award was established to recognize qualities not necessarily pertaining to studio and scholarship.

The fraternity awards the Bronze Alpha Rho Chi Medal annually to a graduating senior at each accredited school of architecture in the United States and Canada. Judged by the faculty of each school, the medal is presented to the graduating senior who has shown an ability for leadership, performed willing service for his or her school or department, and gives promise of real professional merit through his or her attitude and personality.
