Degrees Offered

Master of Architecture


The Judson University Department of Architecture aspires to be a global leader in design education and Christian service. The Department of Architecture is home to undergraduate majors in Architecture and Interior Design as well as the graduate Master of Architecture degree program.

The architecture program was founded in 1997 by a group of faculty and industry leaders with great foresight, courage and faith. The professional Master of Architecture degree was initially accredited* in 2004 by the National Architecture Accrediting Board [NAAB], and it enjoys the highest term of renewed and sustained accreditation at this time. The architecture program, both undergraduate and graduate, is now widely acknowledged for its innovative approach to architectural education including a one year preceptorship [internship] and its context within an evangelical Christian institution.


Judson is an evangelical Christian university that represents the Church at work in higher education, equipping students to be fully developed, responsible persons who glorify God by the quality of their personal relationships, their work, and their citizenship within the community, the nation and the world.
