English degree holder to pursue MArch

Dr. Architecture:

I have an interest in architecture however I have already graduated with a four year degree in Liberal Arts; specifically in English literature and a minor in history. I am wondering if I am able to attend a master's program in architecture instead of starting from the beginning. Thank you.


Absolutely! In the past 20 years, institutions have created Master of Architecture degree programs that are designed for individuals who have an undergraduate degree in a discipline other than architecture. You would be well-suited for pursuing this Master of Architecture.

Visit the following websites to determine which programs exist --

Also, be aware that you may wish to consider taking an ART course at a area community college to help you produce work for a portfolio that most programs require when applying. In addition, many require prerequisites of calculus, physics, and freehand drawing.

Given your interest, consider obtaining Becoming an Architect: A Guide to Careers in Design to learn more about the process of becoming an architect.
