M.Arch + M.S.Arch
Dual Degree Program – Master of Architecture + M.S. in Architecture
Length: Minimum 3.5 years, 70 graduate semester hours
This dual degree program is designed to offer the opportunity for qualified graduate students to study both Master of Architecture (M.Arch) and Master of Science in Architecture (M.S.Arch) in the UTSA Department of Architecture. This research-oriented professional track combining the M.Arch. and M.S.Arch degrees aims to produce graduates who possess the skill set needed to conduct architectural research and, more importantly, understand how to integrate research outcomes into the design decision-making processes. This dual degree program will serve a recent growing trend in architectural professional practice that pairs the conventional approach to practicing architecture with a focus on applied research and evidence-based decision-making. This STEM designated and NAAB accredited professional program informed by a research agenda will provide students with the skills needed to conduct valid and reliable research projects within professional settings.
Applicants will be admitted to the M.Arch and M.S.Arch degree programs independently, according to the admission schedule and policies of each degree program. Applicants must submit all admission materials to each program independently and on time. Admission to the dual degree program may occur after a student has already matriculated in the M.Arch, M.S.Arch, or both degree programs, as long as the student is still within the first-half of each program.
Students should refer to the Department of Architecture catalog for M.Arch and M.S.Arch program admission and degree requirements.
