Department Mission Statement
The Architecture program at Wentworth embraces the art of making. We are committed to the traditional role of the practitioner and master builder: to design and construct buildings that contribute to society and enrich people’s lives. To that end, the curriculum promotes research and design based on the linkages between conceptual frameworks and the tangible nature of architecture. Through rigorous investigations into the history, theory and material culture of the built environment, students engage design as a fusion of the art and science of building.
The department offers four separate degree programs:
- The four-year, pre-professional Bachelor of Science in Architecture.
- The one-year, Master of Architecture professional degree.
- The two-year, Master of Architecture professional degree for external candidates who have a four-year, pre-professional degree from another NAAB-based degree program.
- The three-year, Master of Architecture professional degree for external candidates who have a four-year Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in an unrelated discipline.
