The Master of Architecture program at Kent State is part of a 4+1 accredited course of study. Students holding undergraduate degrees from pre-professional programs in architecture, that are not part of a NAAB accredited sequence, or those holding degrees in other disciplines are not eligible for the Master of Architecture 44 one year program at Kent State. Students interested in a 3+ year accredited program in architecture are asked first to refer to the Bachelor of Science post-undergraduate program, that course of study would then lead to eligibility for the MArch 44 at Kent.
