Master of Architecture

The mission of the Master of Architecture Degree programs and the teaching and learning culture within the Department of Architecture and Interior Design is to conduct architectural inquiry in the pursuit of new forms of knowledge and, through rigorous professional preparation, construct critical practices that empower students to interpret, engage and give form to the ideas and forces that impact their world.

The Master of Architecture (M. Arch.) is a graduate degree that is accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB). In addition to a period of professional internship, the M. Arch. degree qualifies individuals for the Architectural Registration Examination and licensure in architecture. Miami's graduate program in architecture accepts students from three different preparation backgrounds. Students from pre-professional undergraduate architecture programs who wish to complete their professional education will apply to the M. Arch. II program. Those who have earned an undergraduate degree in fields other than architecture will apply to the M. Arch. III program. Additionally, students who have already completed an accredited Bachelor of Architecture (B. Arch.) degree at a North American college or university, and who wish to pursue a specialized field of research, may apply to the M. Arch. I program.
