Home / Degree Programs / Architecture, MArch

The MArch is an accredited professional degree program at ASU. There are two programs of study available. The 2-year program is for applicants who have completed the 4-year BSD in architectural studies at ASU or an equivalent degree from another school that offers an accredited professional degree in architecture. The 3-plus-year program for applicants with an undergraduate degree in a discipline or field other than architecture.

Both programs promote broad areas of knowledge, professional skill and a social awareness that the architect must command if architecture is to enhance contemporary life and remain an enduring and valid expression of society.
