New master of architecture offered
Five-year degree replaces professional bachelor of architecture plan
A new master of architecture degree will be offered at KU and has been programmed into the student administration system, SAKU.
It is an accredited professional degree and has two tracks. One of these maintains the existing, accredited M. Arch. degree, for students holding a bachelor's degree, and it is three years in length.
The new track is five years and will replace the professional bachelor of architecture degree (B. Arch). This track will accommodate students entering directly from high school.
Two of the three degree tracks that were formerly included within the master of architecture program will remain in the graduate school with a new title, Master of Arts in Architecture.
The M. A. in Architecture will serve the "academic" program on the Lawrence campus as well as the Architectural Management program at the Edwards Campus in Overland Park.
