THE MASTER OF SCIENCE IN ARCHITECTURE
The Master of Science in Architecture has two distinct tracks, one post-professional and one academic. The former is a 30-credit design studio based degree program that fulfills the NCARB IDP requirements for post-professional study. The latter is a 30-credit academic degree program for career specialization or preparation for advanced architectural research and scholarship; this academic track degree does not include any design studio coursework. Each of these programs can be completed in a single academic year. Either can also can be pursued on a part-time basis.
Applicants to the post-professional MS Arch are expected to have an NAAB-accredited B.Arch or equivalent degree. International B.Arch degree holders who seek professional licensure in the United States should apply for admission to the M.Arch Program with advanced standing. All applications to NJSOA require the inclusion of all prior post-secondary transcripts, a statement of purpose, three letters of recommendation, GRE results, and a statement of purpose.
