Graduate Admission  

Students are admitted into the graduate programs in the fall term only. Admission is determined by a review of the applicant’s personal statement, letters of recommendation, academic record, and portfolio of architectural and creative work. SCI-Arc offers two graduate programs—MArch 1 and MArch 2 (see below)—as well as two post-professional programs:

M.ARCH 1

A three-year (seven term) professional Master of Architecture program, accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) and open to applicants who hold a bachelor's degree or equivalent in any field of study, M.Arch 1 requires attendance for the fall and spring terms of the first two years, and the fall, spring and summer terms of the final year.

Prerequisites for M.Arch 1:

Prospective M.Arch 1 students are required to complete one semester each of college-level Calculus and Physics, obtaining a grade of "C+" or higher. Accepted students who have not yet taken these courses will receive a Conditional Acceptance into the program, and will be required to complete these prerequisites prior to enrolling in the fall term. All admitted students will be required to submit to the Admissions Office an official copy of their transcripts showing successful completion of these courses prior to the start of the fall semester.

The Foundation Program in Architecture offered at SCI-Arc in the summer term, is recommended (and in some cases required) as a preparatory course for admission to the M.Arch 1 program. Visit the Making+Meaning page to apply online.
