Degrees Offered

Master of Architecture


At the University of Memphis, the study of architecture and interior design encompasses both the art and science of design. The focus is on the education of the individual student through a well-rounded approach in a sequence of foundation courses, design studios, and professional/technical courses. The program of study for each degree program is structured to engage students in the processes and professional standards of design and technology necessary for shaping the built environment. Students are placed at the center of discovery-based studies, and required to assume responsible participation in the study of architecture and interior design.

The first professional Master of Architecture degree is for individuals with a pre-professional degree in architecture, environmental design, or equivalent program of study. The professional curriculum comprises the four-year Bachelor of Fine Arts in Architecture and the two-year Master of Architecture degrees. The post-professional Master of Architecture degree is for individuals already holding a professional degree in architecture who are interested in pursuing opportunities for research, teaching, and independent studies.
