Architecture (M.Arch.)

Format: Campus

Program Description:


The Master of Architecture program emphasizes knowledge of humanist values as they impact contemporary design. It promotes the acquisition of comprehensive design skills through learning and doing — taking concepts and theories acquired in the classroom and using them in the real world.  

The program addresses the increasing level of professional design services required in the 21st century, and the increasing globalization of architectural design.  It utilizes its two locations in major urban areas — the New York/New Jersey metropolitan region, and Wenzhou, China — as resources for access to professional employment and training.

The two-year, 55 credit Master of Architecture degree is the culmination of Kean's  4+2 model for a professional degree in architecture: a four-year Bachelor of Arts degree in architectural studies, followed by the professional master's degree. For students who did not major in architecture as an undergraduate, additional coursework may be required.
