School of Design + Construction Architectural Studies


Master of Architecture

The M.Arch degree program at Washington State University’s School of Design and Construction is fully accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB). Throughout the program students engage in design and scholarship that offers new insights into the role of architecture in our culture, civilization, and environment. Within this context our students challenge existing conventions and offer innovative approaches germane to the critical issues facing the profession of architecture and the world today.

A range of activities and experiences such as lectures, exhibits, study tours, internships, studios, and project reviews provide opportunities for educational and professional engagement on the local, regional, national, and international levels.

The M.Arch degree, combined with professional experience approved by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) and completion of the Architect Registration Examination® (ARE®) ensures one is prepared to practice architecture.


Reference the M.Arch Handbook (PDF) for admission and program policies, procedures, and deadlines.
