MASTER OF ARCHITECTURE
Woodbury School of Architecture offers two Master of Architecture (MArch) programs:3-year professional MArch for students with no prior degree in architecture
The MArch degrees embody a fresh approach to architecture, Los Angeles, and global urban conditions. Within an intimate and immersive program, our innovative coursework trains students to engage in the architectural discourse of the city, making clear-eyed connections between their work, new technologies in both representation and realization, and built and natural environments. Fieldwork, our extensive study-away program, gives students the opportunity to use the world as a research laboratory for their thesis.
Our graduate programs encourage and value all methods of architectural communication: the analog, the digital, the written, the diagrammed, the drawn, the modeled, and the built. We investigate new technologies for representation and building from the position that technology is a means rather than a solution. We believe that there is no craft without knowledge, no technology without theory, no how without why.
The professional programs at Woodbury School of Architecture provide a balance of instruction in studio, representation and visualization, building and construction technologies, and history and theory. During each semester of the foundation, students take a class in each of four realms: studio, building, criticism, and visualization.
This curriculum, together with a course in practice, provides the preparation necessary for a contemporary career in architecture. Other class offerings include advanced electives and skills workshops in topics such as building technology, civic engagement and policy, history and theory, animation and other media.
Students can craft expertise in various disciplinary realms, including building technology, film and media, landscape and urbanism, and real estate and development by accumulating coursework from the multiple campuses and schools. Students and faculty come together to discuss new models of architectural practice, to expand the role of the architect in society, and to question disciplinary boundaries.
Woodbury School of Architecture is a practices lab, bridging the gap between theory and practice, in which acclaimed faculty and their research interests provide frameworks for study.
Students may work within faculty-led initiatives, including:
Student : Brittany Jackson . Instructor : Gary Paige .
