The fully accredited three-and-a-half-year Master of Architecture at the University at Buffalo welcomes individuals who hold degrees in diverse fields, architectural studies and design.
It recognizes the values and strengths that a wide-ranging education has on the formation of an architect and seeks to build on that platform through its core sequence of design studios and courses. The curriculum is tailored to combine the immersive experience of an architectural education with an advanced understanding of design. Through exposure to the many facets of architecture as a discipline and profession, students will experience the impact of understanding the built environment as a cultural endeavor. Graduate research groups are a distinctive part of the MArch programs at UB. There are also opportunities to study abroad, while the City of Buffalo offers a range of settings in which students can develop design interests and pursue independent research.
