Masters in Landscape Architecture in North America 2017/2018. 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... [-]

Masters in Landscape Architecture in North America 2017/2018. The Conway program is a lively mix of classroom instruction, applied studio work, student and visitor presentations, field work, site visits, and informal discussions in the collective kitchen. Sketching in the field 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. A Typical Week at Conway We’re small. That means we can change the schedule on a moment’s notice–load up the van and go on a field trip to see what happens when a dam collapses; visit a project site during a community street festival; add a class to introduce new software that suddenly became available. We do, though, have a regular weekly schedule. Projects Each Conway student works on three projects, one per term. In the fall, students have their own site design project,... [-]
