Master of Architecture

The Master of Architecture (MArch) degree program builds on a student’s undergraduate experience, and builds the foundation for a career as a professional architect.

This is a one-and-a-half-year program consisting of a summer internship, one academic year of graduate-level seminars and an individual, custom-designed thesis experience designed around a topic of the student’s choosing.

Graduates from other colleges are not accepted into the fifth year of this program, nor is admission for students who graduate with a Norwich bachelor’s degree in architecture automatic. In their fourth year, students submit a portfolio of studio work for review and approval by a faculty committee.

Between the fourth and fifth years, students work as an intern in an architecture office (or in a design-related firm). Coursework is completed using distance-learning techniques, which not only permit students to work where they wish, but encourage them to master digital communications technology important to architectural practice.

The Master of Architecture degree is a first professional degree and  is required for licensure.
