A master's degree is a postgraduate academic degree. One must already have an undergraduate degree to apply for a master's program. Most master's degree program would require students to complete a master's thesis or research paper.
Architecture is the trade by which buildings are designed and then built. This involves using technology, materials, and the environment in order to fulfill the requirements of the law and of those contracting the construction.
The United States of America is a large country in North America, often referred to as the "USA", the "US", the "United States", "America", or simply "the States". American colleges are funded by "tuition" charged to the student, which is often quite expensive, very commonly reaching into the tens of thousands of dollars per year.

Master of Architecture program is for students who are interested in studying architecture at the graduate level, but whose undergraduate degrees were obtained in fields outside of architecture. [+]
The Master of Architecture program’s curriculum has been shaped by the global emphasis on sustainability, factors that impact urbanism, and the hands-on application of the principles of design and technology on materials and construction.
With a global push for a more sustainable world, including buildings that use energy and environmental factors more efficiently to lessen an overall carbon footprint, the focus of many courses reflect the conditions of sustainable design and practice.
Because a degraded urban environment has grave implications for social, economic, cultural, and environmental health, the program pays particular attention to urban settings and urban principles. The complexity of the urban environment requires an interdisciplinary approach to architecture education – one that references economics, public policy, sociology, and regional culture. The program will focus on the practices and principles of preservation and adaptive reuse. The city of Rochester, New York, will serve as an active learning environment for students.... [-]

Students learn from faculty, from each other, from guests, and from their explorations of their project sites and the communities where those projects are embedded. The environment is personal, collaborative, and rigorous—learning is driven by motivated students working for real communities to solve real and pressing problems.
The Conway program is built around those real projects for real clients. The projects raise issues, questions, and challenges—from technical questions about site engineering, to ethical issues about community involvement or wise use of resources, to practical questions about how resilience can be built into systems in the face of uncertain futures—that drive the classes, discussions, and field and studio work that make up the rest of the fully integrated, multidisciplinary program. Class assignments—graphic, technical, and written—support project work.... [-]
