Master of Science in Architecture

The MS.Arch curriculum offers an intensive post-professional education grounded in advanced research. The program places particular emphasis on design research that promotes new dimensions of thought and practice around climate change. Through rigorous inquiry and experimental projects within various New York City sites, students deepen their understanding of life systems and gain new skills in visualizing, modeling, and fabricating architectural ideas in ecologically complex contexts.
