Master of Architecture with Health + Wellness option curriculum
All of the students in their final year of the Master of Architecture program choose a option to concentrate and focus their studies. The Health + Wellness option allows the student in-depth study in this area through a series of seminars, professional internships, and a capstone studio. The three required courses in the Health + Wellness curriculum are:
ARCH 731: Architecture of Health (3 credit hours): An introduction to healthcare facilities and systems which is usually taken in the spring semester.
ARCH 807: Health + Wellness Internship (6 credit hours): A seven-month paid internship in a professional firm doing significant design, planning and/or research in environments that contribute to human health and well-being. ARCH 808: Health + Wellness Capstone Studio (6 credit hours): The final studio for graduates in the M.Arch. curriculum allows the student to integrate all aspects of their previous coursework, internship experience, and professional interests.
Students who complete the required course sequence in this curriculum are eligible to receive the Graduate Certificate in Architecture of Health + Wellness. Please refer to the Heath + Wellness Certificate page for details.
