Master of Architecture


The M.Arch curriculum focuses on contemporary issues directly affecting the field, ranging from new representational techniques to sustainable built and natural systems. It prepares students to enter the professional architecture community and shape the built environment and the field. The M.Arch is a program within Parsons’ School of Constructed Environments (SCE), alongside related degrees in interior, lighting, and product/industrial design. In the SCE studio, members of a diverse student body collaborate on complex design problems, from interiors to comprehensive architectural volumes, public spaces, and urban design.


In 1919, a few great minds imagined a school that would rethink the purpose of higher learning. The New School is an amalgamation of a world-famous design school, a premier liberal arts college, a renowned performing arts school, a legendary social research school, and other advanced degree programs, created to challenge and support freethinkers who want to change the world.
