M.Arch Track III Program Curriculum

The M.Arch Track III is intended for students who hold an undergraduate degree in a field other than architecture. This option specifically welcomes students who come to LTU with accomplishments and interests in other fields of inquiry with the expectation that such students will bring their interests and skills into the practice of architecture.

If you already hold a Bachelor of Science in Architecture or a Bachelor of Architecture from LTU or another accredited institution, you may qualify for our M.Arch Track II program.
