The undergraduate pre-professional architecture program offers a course of study in architecture. Elective offerings include topics such as exhibit design, furniture design, and sustainable design. As students advance, they learn to solve increasingly complex problems and to design buildings, interiors, and structures that satisfy social, aesthetic, safety, and ecological considerations.
Classes are taught by practicing professionals and are friendly, informal, and highly participatory. Field trips to building sites, seminars on leading design issues, and research on the nature of materials and technologies complement coursework.
Graduates of MassArt’s undergraduate architecture program have routinely gained admission to excellent graduate programs around the country. Now students have the additional option of attaining a master of architecture degree at MassArt with an additional four semesters following the four-year undergraduate program. (The program is in the proces of obtaining NAAB accreditation).
