Graduate students who have a passion for the design and construction process of physical structures and spaces might find that enrolling in an architecture masters program may prepare them to pursue a variety of career paths, including that as a professional architect. Employment of architects is projected to increase 7% from 2014 to 2024, which is about as fast as the average for all occupations. Earning a master’s in architecture can take from 1 to 5 years to complete, depending on the extent of the student’s previous education base in architecture[ii].
