M.Arch. II: Two-Year Program Admission Requirements

M.Arch. II: Two-Year Program Admission Requirements

Applicants to the M.Arch. II program must hold a five-year bachelor of architecture (B.Arch.) degree, or an equivalent first professional degree. A professional degree is one that allows for the practice of architecture in the country where the degree was attained without additional educational requirements. A bachelor of arts or bachelor of science degree with a major in architecture is not considered a first professional degree. Students with international professional degrees should apply to the M.Arch. II program, even if they eventually plan to pursue licensure in the United States. Please check the NCARB website for information on U.S. reciprocity with international professional degrees: https://www.ncarb.org.
