Master of Architecture 3G

The Graduate Architecture Program at Tennessee challenges students to do more than envision buildings. We explore and investigate issues of technology, material culture, and political economy alongside a commitment to histories and theories of the built environment. We prepare graduate students to be all-purpose intellectuals, willing to and able to engage in cultural production and agency.

The Master of Architecture 3G program is designed for students who come from a variety of backgrounds, including those with no previous formal study in architecture or a degree from a non-accredited architecture program.

This program begins in July鈥攑rospective students should apply for Summer enrollment.

Recommended pre-requisites: Humanities (12 Hours), Physics (1 course), Pre-calculus (1 course).

You are not going to find a more cohesive curriculum, a more engaging student body or a more dedicated faculty and staff, who make it impossible to graduate with anything less than excellence.
