INSTITUTION: Ball State University, Department of Architecture
DEGREE OFFERED: Master of Architecture (March) Sustainability Concentration DESCRIPTION: The professional Master of Architecture degree (March) addresses the broad and various areas of knowledge needed to enter the profession. The curriculum is designed so the knowledge gained in it is general, usefully applicable, and cumulative. Concentrations in the professional program complement this curriculum. Concentrations are areas of emphasis in which students can choose to gain more specialized knowledge and skills in an area of their choosing. At Ball State, concentrations link a student's architectural studies to our allied design disciplines and / or address those issues that confront contemporary architectural thought and practice. Currently our concentrations include preservation, urban planning, landscape architecture, sustainability, and fabrication. Within the context of their concentrations, students can take advantage of college-related research centers that include the Center for Energy Research / Education / Service, Building Futures Institute, Land Design Institute, Institute for Digital Fabrications, and Community-Based Projects. Students may also formulate their own independent concentration with consultation and approval by the Program Director and the Graduate Admissions Committee. To complete a concentration a student must take a minimum of nine hours of approved coursework in the concentration as well as emphasizing the concentration in the thesis.
