The design culture of SCI-Arc’s B.Arch program is focused both on the discipline of architecture, in terms of its history, theory, techniques, and on the practice of architecture, in terms of building technology, innovative means of construction, and professional practice.
The core of the M.Arch 1 program at SCI-Arc is architectural experimentation and learning through making. Central to the program’s philosophy is a firm commitment to design excellence, achieved through a comprehensive course of study that provides students with a solid intellectual base and understanding of the history, theory, technology, and professional practice of architecture.
SCI-Arc’s advanced Master of Architecture program introduces students to an advanced critical perspective on contemporary architectural issues as a tool with which to examine the complex and shifting relationship between architecture and cultural, political, economic and social change.
