The Master of Architecture (MArch) at the Tyler School of Art and Architecture offers students a creative, interdisciplinary, NAAB-accredited education alongside artists, scholars, planners and landscape architects, plus access to the resources of Temple University, a leading research university.
Tyler MArch students join a welcoming, diverse community of thinkers and makers who are mission-driven and civically minded. Guided by a faculty who are all practicing designers and innovative researchers, students are pushed to work collaboratively and use the urban context of Philadelphia to engage issues ranging from advocacy and technology to sustainability, health and the global context of architectural design.
The curriculum is focused on design thinking and making through coursework in general studies, design studio, architectural history and theory and building technology and practice. Courses take place in Tyler’s spacious design studios, classrooms, labs and shops where drawing, model making, and digital processes are practiced and learned.
Tyler’s three-year MArch track draws students from a wide range of academic backgrounds and experiences who work alongside students in Tyler’s +1 (4+1) and +2 (4+2) BS Arch + MArch programs in the studio, where they share strengths, skills and experiences. All of Tyler’s programs that conclude with a MArch degree—including the +1, +2 and three-year programs—meet the National Architectural Accrediting Board’s standards for an accredited professional education.
