Master of Architecture in Florida International University

Florida International University (FIU)
Paul L. Cejas School of Architecture
United States
Architecture & Design

The Department of Architecture is dedicated to the education of future generations of ethical professionals, creative designers, and informed citizens. We believe architecture to be a conceptually based intellectual endeavor and a form of critical inquiry that addresses the physical environment from the scale of the city to the scale of furniture. To realize these objectives, design is taught as a critical and creative enterprise.
The Department of Architecture prepares students for professional practice in the discipline of architecture with emphasis placed upon six thematic areas: architectural design, history/theory, building technologies, digital technology, ethics and professional business practice, and general education.


Miami is an urban laboratory for the study of architecture. The region provides limitless possibilities for exploring historic architecture and urbanism, as well as contemporary new work by many of the world’s leading architects. The challenges of rapid growth and urban development in Miami and the region have created an ideal environment for the study of these timely issues. The program takes advantage of Miami’s position as one of the principal academic and commercial gateways to Latin America and Europe.


The Department offers the Accelerated Master of Architecture degree (M. Arch) which integrates pre-graduate and graduate coursework in a single curricular path which may be taken over five or six years. The accelerated Master of Architecture path begins freshman year with two years of pre-graduate coursework (72 credit hours). Students in good standing move directly to 102 credit hours of graduate coursework. The accelerated Master of Architecture degree path concludes with the conferral of the accredited professional Master’s degree. Transition to graduate study occurs without the conferral of an undergraduate degree and no bachelor’s degree is awarded at any point.
