Graduate Studies in Architecture at Georgia Tech are comprised of four distinct degree-granting programs: the Master of Architecture, the Master of Science in Architecture (MS with several areas of concentration), the MSUD (Master of Science in Urban Design) and the Ph.D. (Doctor of Philosophy degree with several areas of concentration).
The M.Arch Program is the professional Program in architecture leading to the NAAB-accredited Master of Architecture Degree. The 2-year track accommodates students who hold a pre-professional degree in architecture and a 3 ½ -year track is designed for students who hold 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 www.NCARB.org 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.
