Master of Architecture Post-Baccalaureate 

The NAAB accredited Post-Baccalaureate Master of Architecture program is an accelerated, three-year pathway to architect status, designed for those with a Bachelor’s degree in any field. This accredited, professional program is well-respected, and our graduates are highly desired by employers across the nation and internationally. The Post-Baccalaureate program requires a minimum of three years of study, including a required summer studio. 

A unique program option is the Kansas City Design Center, which offers a year-long interdisciplinary design studio that tackles real-world issues in a growing, thriving metropolitan area.

*Advanced Standing Option for Pre-Professional Degree Holders:
If you have or will graduate from a 4 year pre-professional architecture degree program offered by a NAAB-Accredited school, you may be eligible for advanced standing. Advanced standing students generally are able to waive the first and second semesters of the Post-Baccalaureate Program. Extremely qualified students may be placed further along in the program.
