The MArch 2+ curriculum is a five-semester, advanced placement course of study, beginning always in a fall semester. Students are considered for placement in the MArch 2+ curriculum on the basis of design portfolio evaluation and the extent of their undergraduate architectural studies. Placement in this curriculum is highly selective. The MArch 2+ sequence begins with the final, comprehensive core studio (419) and concludes with the Degree Project; parallel course work in each of the five semesters matches that of the MArch 2 curriculum, plus electives selected in consultation with the student's graduate advisor. This 75-credit program leads to a professionally accredited Master of Architecture degree.
Students admitted to the MArch 2+ program have the opportunity to waive the following courses:
Building Systems (A46 445)*
Structures I (A46 447A)*
Stuctures II (A46 448A)
Architectural History I (A46 4280)
Architectural History II (A46 4284)*
Environmental Systems I (A46 438)*
Environmental Systems II (A46 439)
The waived courses will be replaced with general elective credits.
*Please note that admitted MArch2+ students must waive at least one of these courses or they must take both Structures I and Structures II during the first summer of their program.
