Architecture, M.Arch.

Master how to provide design leadership and contribute to an increasingly sustainable built environment by studying the past, present, and future of meaningful architectural design.

What You’ll Learn

The M.Arch program at New York Tech helps you develop a critical understanding of historic and contemporary practices, cultures, and movements in the industry, preparing you to become a visionary leader and problem solver. 

The program has two options:

  • a two-year professional degree track for those with a pre-professional degree in architecture

  • a three-year track for those with a bachelor’s degree in another area 

Both options offer opportunities for travel abroad studios, workshops, and summer and semester programs at New York Tech’s international university partners in Europe, Asia, and Latin America. 

Throughout your program, you’ll engage in experimental, innovative challenges in areas including digital design and fabrication, advanced architectural technology, and environmental urbanism.
