Architecture alumni make their mark as creative professionals in many different ways. Some launch their own practices designing and building residential and/or commercial projects, while others join larger established firms or smaller studios. In addition to practicing as architects, alumni have also gone on to stand out as sustainability specialists, author/illustrators, educators, health care designers and more…

RISD's Master of Architecture program is one of the few in the US embedded in a college of art and design. Here, architecture is taught in a way that understands the practice of design and making as a thoughtful, reflective process that both engenders and draws from social, political, material, technological and cultural agendas. The program aims to empower students to exercise their creativity by understanding their role as cultural creators and equipping them to succeed in the client-based practice of architecture.\n

\n

The three-year curriculum builds on fundamental areas underpinning the creative practice of architecture: representation and fabrication; technologies and professional ethics; history and theory; and design and the process of projecting architecture. Throughout the program, ideas are expressed not only discursively but through actual production.\n

At the discretion of the admission committee, applicants with a four-year undergraduate degree in architecture may be admitted to the Masters of Architecture advanced standing track. Successful advanced standing students typically complete degree requirements in two years.\n

","title":"MArch | 2-year program"},{"description":"

Graduate students in Architecture take a challenging, three-semester sequence of core studios involving group and individual efforts, a combination of digital and material media, and abstract and concrete forms of thinking. These studios recognize that the fundamentals of architecture are neither universal nor fixed. In that spirit, we emphasize the creation of methods, spaces, experiences and theories. Students challenge preconceptions and defaults in order to reconsider the intertwining intellectual, intuitive and physical factors involved in architecture.\n

","title":"Core studios"},{"description":"

Brown University students who complete a four-year undergraduate degree in Architecture Studies have the opportunity to integrate the humanities with an intensive design studio education through RISD's two-year advanced standing track master's program. The BA in Architecture Studies from Brown prepares 4+2 students for the advanced standing degree program at RISD, which is a professional degree that provides students with licensure.

The 4+2 program requires students to complete a combination of 42 credits in the arts, humanities and social sciences at Brown, and architectural studios as well as courses in building technologies and drawing at RISD. Prospective 4+2 students must work with a program advisor from the corresponding institution to plan out coursework during each part of the program. Acceptance into the advanced standing track is at the discretion of the admissions committee.\n

","title":"4+2 Brown/RISD Program"},{"description":"

More than 40 full- and part-time faculty members work with approximately 100 total graduate students in the department, providing criticism and support through critiques, informal reflection and ongoing discussion—both during and outside of class time. Visiting professors contribute alternate perspectives and insights, complementing the range of academic, research-based and professional practice among the resident faculty. Master of Architecture candidates come to RISD from around the world, bringing different approaches and various degrees of fluency in visual, verbal, construction-based and technical expression.\n

","title":"Inspiring community"},{"description":"

Our large open studios give every student an individual and customizable workspace. These spaces support material exploration, digital and material drafting and modeling. Designed to foster individual creativity while also inviting communal discourse and shared making, these spaces capitalize on the diversity within our student body and cultivate a learning environment that prepares students for the highly collaborative practice of architecture.\n

","title":"Learning environment"},{"description":"

The degree project represents the culmination of each student's interests relative to the curriculum. A seminar in the fall of the final year helps focus these interests into a plan of action. Working in small groups of six to eight under the guidance of a single professor supported by a secondary advisor, students pursue individual projects throughout Wintersession and spring semester. Degree projects are expected to embody the architectural values that best characterize their authors as architects and are critiqued based on the success of translating these values into tangible objects.\n

\n\tRISD's Architecture program has the distinct advantage of being integrated into a college known for the breadth and depth of its fine arts and design offerings, meaning that students benefit from a strong visual and humanities-based education within a progressive professional curriculum. Architecture majors also appreciate being immersed in a community of creative individuals who are passionate about disciplines as diverse as animation, graphic design, printmaking and sculpture.\n

","title":"Inspiring community"},{"description":"

\n\tThrough a program that builds on itself, students learn to think critically; to produce architecture through both reflection and invention; to build using a variety of materials; to understand the technical aspects of architecture; to communicate ideas through drawing, model making, writing and speaking; and to be socially and ethically engaged in society. After exposure to the fundamentals of the field – design, material performance, digital and manual representation, and architectural history – students move on to solidify work by focusing on architectural, urban design and environmental issues, engaging in advanced topics in architectural history and responding to complex architectural design problems.\n

\n\tIn the final year of the program, students focus on an intensive investigation and analysis of building systems, professional practice and design as part of a self-determined degree project.\n

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 (NAAB), the sole agency authorized to accredit US professional degree programs in architecture, recognizes three 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.\n

\n

Doctor of Architecture and Master of Architecture degree programs may consist of a preprofessional undergraduate degree and a professional graduate degree that, when earned sequentially, constitute an accredited professional education. However, the preprofessional degree by itself is not recognized as an accredited degree.\n
