School/Division: School of Architecture
Degree/Certificate: Masters Degree
The Master of Architecture program brings together renowned, progressive academic faculty and award-winning practitioners to set new international standards for postgraduate education, placing the School in a key pedagogical position to combine influences from all corners of the global architectural community. The M.Arch draws upon a 100-year tradition of groundbreaking architectural design in Los Angeles by its distinguished alumni and faculty, exemplified by the Pritzker Prize laureates Frank Gehry and Thom Mayne.
The graduate program is built on three levels. The first level is dedicated to introducing essential disciplinary knowledge and the basic skills required for the NAAB-accredited degree. The second level builds upon this foundation with increasingly refined vocational knowledge and advanced professional capability. The final level culminates with a year of individually directed work, with master classes and a directed design research project (thesis) focused on the student’s emergent architectural interests. All three levels draw on the University’s extended resources and the inspiration of Los Angeles. Firmly rooted in an investigative mode of critical, professional practice, the program’s aim is for every graduate to be prepared for the challenges of the 21st century.
