Degree Requirements for MA in Architecture Present Future is a concentrated undertaking culminating in a Master of Arts in Architecture degree. The program is structured around a two-semester-long exploration of a topic led by a Rice School of Architecture faculty member. A select group of students forms the core: a collective intelligence responsible for developing a discourse that synthesizes theoretical, historical, and design ambitions. Subjects will be of contemporary importance and will be framed by a 3-credit pro-seminar the first term and a 12-credit collective thesis in the second term. In addition to free electives, each semester will include additional required credits that are appropriate to the selected topic, bringing the total credit hours to 30. The program's student body will include those with backgrounds in architecture as well as other fields: individuals with B.A., B.S. equivalent, or more advanced degrees in architecture or other disciplines are invited to apply. Coursework will include offerings from the School of Architecture and other departments across Rice University. 1st Semester ARCH 651 Present Future Seminar Elective Elective Elective 2nd Semester ARCH 602 Architectural Problems II Elective Elective
