About

Building a new generation of architects

The Master of Architecture (M.Arch) at Indiana University is a new program that reimagines the links between art, architecture, and the city by educating architects to be civic minded, innovative, and imaginative world thinkers.

The inaugural class, beginning in the fall of 2018, will be housed in the School of Art, Architecture and Design, within the College of Arts and Sciences, the home of liberal arts at IU Bloomington. The school offers a range of master’s degrees at the Bloomington campus and at the IU Center for Art and Design in Columbus, a city that is nationally known for its outstanding examples of great modern architecture.

A message from the dean

The School of Art, Architecture + Design offers unparalleled opportunities for collaboration across a spectrum of art and design disciplines, as well as through the rich and diverse College of Arts and Sciences on IU’s Bloomington campus. Our faculty are internationally recognized leaders who provide mentorship and inspiration to their students. They support a truly transdisciplinary learning environment for those seeking a boundless and connected education.

Our newest degree offering, the Master of Architecture, builds upon our long tradition of quality graduate education. While the program will be based in the beautiful city of Columbus, some 45 minutes from Bloomington, the M.Arch will continue to be strongly connected to IU Bloomington as faculty and students from Bloomington will interact with the program in a variety of ways. These strong connections will offer students all that is possible at a research one (R1) university.

SoAAD is filled with builders who are fully engaged with creating the most innovative and exciting of programs. This website emphasizes the uniqueness of the M.Arch curriculum. I truly believe you cannot find another program like this one, not just in the United States, but in the world. Whether it be our partnership with Columbus and the emphasis on community engagement and coalition building, our international offering—the Nomadic Studio, the infusion of art into the program, or the balance between tradition and technology, we are building a program like no other.

We welcome you to visit or call, and we look forward to connecting with you.
