Program Description

M.Arch 1

SCI-Arc

SCI-Arc’s M.Arch 1 is a three-year, seven-term, professional Master of Architecture program. The core of the program involves architectural experimentation and learning through making.

Open to applicants who hold a bachelor’s degree or equivalent in any field of study, the M.Arch 1 program requires attendance for the fall and spring terms of the first two years, and the fall, spring, and summer terms of the third year. The curriculum is horizontally integrated and vertically progressive, starting with a four-semester core sequence in which students develop a framework for the discipline and a strong foundation for critical inquiry and experimentation.

Each semester’s design studio is integrally linked with courses in visual, cultural, and applied studies, giving insights into the relationship between architecture and technological advances, representation, and social change. With each progressive semester, students become more sophisticated in addressing complex architectural issues while testing their own intellectual and design convictions.

Upon completion of the core sequence, students are invited to choose from a variety of advanced studios and seminars in which they investigate the latest innovations in technology, advance new approaches to design analysis, and innovate through applied research. The program puts a particular emphasis on the production of architecture, and the ways in which making produces a unique intelligence in the field.

Students complete their studies with a thoroughly researched independent architectural thesis, which they present in a public exhibition.

The M.Arch 1 program is accredited by NAAB (the National Architectural Accrediting Board).
