We offer two ways to earn your Master of Architecture from LTU:
A 36 credit-hour online program for students who have earned a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from LTU or a comparable institution. This track is ideal for prospective architects who wish to expand their skills and earn a master’s degree while continuing to work. This program consists of 36 credit hours, 32 of which can be taken online (one 4-credit summer course, the Critical Practice Studio, requires students to work on campus for one week).
An extended online program for individuals with an undergraduate degree other than a Bachelor of Science in 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. Starting in the fall of 2018, students can complete the M. Arch 3+ track online.
As a nationally renowned program focused on teaching, our architecture department believes in student-centered learning. We keep our classes small and coursework challenging but manageable.
