Program Description

Master of Architecture

Universidad del Turabo


The Master of Architecture degree program is intended to provide our graduates with the requisite educational background and practice experience to enter the profession of architecture. The program’s focus balances historical, theoretical, technical, practice and design knowledge in the economic, social, and professional realms of architecture. Students will also work in a design-build studio with a community-oriented project that includes research, schematic design, design development and construction of an innovative solution containing all practice phases, as are viability study, the contract document, construction procurement and building administration stages. The program has been designed to fit the needs of a highly focused student that intends to complete architecture licensing process and to become fundamental pieces in the roles of integrating a collaborative contemporary architecture practice both locally and globally.
