Graduate Admissions

Graduate Admissions

Graduate Studies in Architecture at Georgia Tech are comprised of four distinct degree-granting programs:

  1. Master of Architecture (M.Arch)
  2. Master of Science in Architecture (M.S.Arch, with five areas of concentration)
  3. Master of Science in Urban Design (MSUD)
  4. Ph.D. in Architecture (with five areas of concentration) 

Our Graduate Programs

The Master of Architecture program is the professional program in architecture leading to the NAAB-accredited M.Arch degree. The 2-year track accommodates students who hold a pre-professional degree in architecture; the 3.5-year track is designed for students with an undergraduate degree in a field other than architecture. 

Licensure requirements include a professional degree, a period of practical training (internship), and successful completion of all of the sections of the Architect Registration Examination (ARE). Each state determines the specific requirements with regard to initial training, examination, and professional practice. Please visit for additional information.

The M.S. in Architecture, the MSUD, and the Ph.D. programs are post-professional programs in advanced architectural studies and are oriented toward advanced practice, scholarship, and research.
