Our Program

The Master of Architecture Program at Georgia Tech provides students with a professional degree leading to a career in architecture or a related field. Our program foregrounds design and research through a curricular structure that integrates history, theory, technology, and practice with design studios. Students benefit from strong connections to the School’s internationally recognized Ph.D. Program and the resources of one of the world's premier technological universities. 

Our students have the opportunity to pursue their interests in a range of topics including sustainability, urbanism, materials and building systems, digital design & fabrication, high-performance buildings, and design & health, among others. Acknowledging the transformative changes occurring in the profession of architecture, our program anticipates what practice will be in the near future and prepares our graduates to be in front of, and leaders of these changes.

You do not need an undergraduate architecture degree to enroll in our M. Arch program. We actively recruit and accept graduate students with diverse degrees including humanities, engineering, business, and social and natural sciences. Applicants come from a wide range of universities throughout the United States and abroad and one of the strengths of our program is the cultural and intellectual diversity of our students. 

Students with a degree other than architecture enter into our 3.5-year track and students with a pre-professional architecture degree enter into our 2-year track.

In 2017, our M. Arch. was officially designated as a STEM degree program by the Board of Regents of Georgia!
