From urban planning to interior design, many professions today benefit from in-depth study of architecture.

Students with a bachelor’s degree in any field may apply.
The program typically requires one to two years of full-time study to achieve 45 required units: 35 professional requirements and 10 professional electives.
Note on Licensure and Accreditation:
Please note that the Master of Architecture II is not a professional degree and is not recognized and/or accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB).
NewSchool of Architecture & Design is accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools to award bachelors degrees and masters degrees. In the United States, most state registration boards require a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a prerequisite for licensure. The National Architectural Accrediting Board, which is the sole agency authorized to accredit U.S. professional degree programs in architecture, recognizes 3 types of degrees: the Bachelor of Architecture, the Master of Architecture, and the Doctor of Architecture. A program may be granted a 6-year, 3-year, or 2-year term of accreditation, depending on the extent of its conformance with established educational standards. Doctor of Architecture & Master of Architecture degree programs may consist of a pre-professional undergraduate degree and a professional graduate, however, the pre-professional degree is not, by itself, recognized as an accredited degree.
