The topic doesn't cover worldwide term "Master of Architecture" and is limited to USA. I suggest to move/rename this page. This unsigned comment was left by User:18.104.22.168
I agree that the article needs expansion - perhaps by moving the list of US schools to a separate List of US Architecture Schools and including an overview of other nations. --Mcginnly | Natter 19:31, 12 September 2006 (UTC)
In fact, reading Wikipedia is not a directory I'm inclined to move the list from article space to here. Can we have a discussion about this? I'll assume no dissent if the communities silent on the matter for a month. --Mcginnly | Natter 08:50, 9 October 2006 (UTC)
- Propose Master of Architecture programs in the United States as the new filename, with a link from this international MA article. —dogears (talk) 22:24, 9 October 2006 (UTC)
- It's useful to have a page on the U.S. M.Arch. degree, with its 3 variations. Can anyone make this page world-wide? JJL 22:26, 9 October 2006 (UTC)
Not by the numbers
This is for the US architecture programs only...
As I understand it,
B.Arch = first professional degree (5 years)
M.Arch1 = first professional degree (5 year path or 3.5 year path)
M.Arch2 = second Professional degree (1.5 years to 2 years typically)
M.Arch3 = (well, I've not heard of one of those, but that's not to say that it doesn't exist.
Anecdotal evidence... I'm not sure where the original writer got the 1,2,3 delineation but my degree is called a M. Arch1(2001) and was a 3.5 year program. The school (Tulane University) is also accredited by the NAAB to issue a M. Arch1 to the students enrolled in the 5 year program. I have friends that are getting M. Arch2 degrees... one that will take him 2 years(Yale) and one that will take her 1.5 years(Harvard). Both of the M. Arch2 candidates have a Bachelor of Architecture (an accredited NAAB First Professional degree) It should also me noted that some candidates for various degrees are offered advanced placement and are able to shorten their time in school.
For what it's worth, that's what I know... peter 22.214.171.124 04:42, 31 January 2007 (UTC)
________________________________________________________________ I also understood that (in the US) the M.Arch. II is either a post-professional degree or a second professional degree, for those who already have a professional degree (B.Arch or M.Arch. I). And that an M.Arch I is a first professional degree for those with undergraduate liberal arts degrees. maureen
