Program description

Master of Architecture

The Master of Architecture program is directed towards students who are interested in studying architecture at the graduate level, but whose undergraduate degrees were obtained in fields outside of architecture. The master program is designed to produce broad-thinking architects, who are well grounded in the principles and practices of sustainability, and can apply their knowledge and talents to the architectural problems posed by the modern city.

Heavily influenced by the global emphasis of sustainability, factors that impact urbanism, and the hands-on application of the principles of design and technology on materials and construction, the Master of Architecture program focuses on:

  • Urbanism – With Rochester, New York, serving as an active learning platform, you will take an interdisciplinary approach to architecture education and focus on the economical, public, social and regional aspects of architecture. The Master of Architecture program&;gives special attention to urban settings and urban principles.
  • Technology – Through the duration of the Master of Architecture program you will learn to focus and collaborate in many specialized areas of technology, including engineering, computer science, imaging science, materials and construction, and products and remanufacturing.
  • Sustainability – The Master in Architecture program’s courses reflect the conditions of sustainable design and practice.
