Master of Architecture (M.Arch.); Professional (Non-Thesis) — Design Studio-Directed Research (60 credits)

Offered by: Architecture     Degree: Master of Architecture

Program Requirements

The Directed Research concentration is a four-term, 60-credit option, which is a modified version of the regular three-term 45-credit program. This is a self-directed project-based investigation that allows for a transition to a Ph.D. program through an intensive research component.

Candidates within this concentration option are assigned a faculty adviser and engage in project-based directed research. Complementary and elective courses are approved in consultation with the adviser.
