Professional Degree for Undergraduates
The 5-year 180-credit Master of Architecture (M.Arch. I) is a professionally-accredited degree necessary for becoming a licensed architect. This National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) accredited degree presents the most direct path into the practice of architecture. High school seniors who apply and are admitted to this program enter directly into this intense and demanding studio-based degree program without pre-professional course work in environmental design or graphics. KU is one of several schools in the U.S. that offer a 5-year accredited Master of Architecture degree.
