Professional Master’s Degree
The Master of Architecture (M.Arch.), accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), is intended for students who plan to practice architecture professionally. It qualifies them to take the state professional licensing examination after completing the required internship. Refer to the NAAB statement on the School of Architecture’s website(link is external) for more information.
Students are eligible for admission to the graduate program whether or not they have had undergraduate work in architecture. The typical duration of the program is three years; students with an intensive undergraduate architecture background may be eligible for advanced standing.
Post-Professional Master’s Degree
A post-professional M.Arch. degree is available to those who hold the degree of Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch.) or its equivalent from an international institution. These are students who have successfully completed a professional program in architecture and have fulfilled the educational requirements for professional licensing in the state or country in which the degree was granted. Students typically complete this program in two years. The post-professional degree is not accredited by the NAAB.
Students in the professional M.Arch. program must take a minimum of 25 courses, typically four per term, including one design studio each term and the independent design thesis in the final term. The studio sequence, required building technology and professional practice courses, and courses in history and theory of architecture and urbanism constitute a core knowledge of the discipline. In addition to these required courses, each student must complete distribution requirements within the areas of history and theory and building technology. In order to encourage the development of an individual program of study, each student may select up to three electives, which may be fulfilled with any course offered within the University and approved by the director of graduate studies.
Students granted advanced standing are usually required to take a minimum of 16 courses within the distributional requirements of the three-year program, including one design studio each term and the independent design thesis in the final term. Because of the differences in the educational backgrounds of students entering with advanced standing, the required number of courses in the areas of distribution is determined by the director of graduate studies after reviewing each student’s transcript and experience.
While students normally take four courses each term, in their final term of the program they may enroll in and complete as few as two courses, provided total course requirements will still be met and additional time is needed in the final term to meet the specific research requirements of the thesis. Students who wish to enroll in fewer than four courses in the final term must have this request reveiwed and approved by the director of graduate studies.
Students in the post-professional master’s degree program are granted wide latitude in course selection in order to create a program of study which aligns with their individual educational and research goals. The courses are distributed across the areas of design studios and a design thesis, history and theory, building technology, and elective courses that can be taken throughout the University with the approval of the director of graduate studies. Students entering the program in fall 2014 or later are required to take a minimum of 16 courses.
The thesis at Princeton is understood to be the culmination of the Master of Architecture curriculum and, as such, it is the moment when the student contributes to, and advances, the discipline. Students participate in a thesis workshop during their penultimate semester. The aim of this workshop is to hone topics by situating them within a lineage—articulating where a project resembles or differs from works that have addressed such topics—and by developing a focused argument for a particular approach to the question. The thesis design project, conducted as independent work during the final semester, then tests this approach in a project whose underpinnings are pointed toward the synthesis of intellectual and design objectives. The thesis concludes with a public final review, where the project is evaluated both on its own terms and within the broader field of contemporary architectural discourse.
Students entering the M.Arch. programs are required to have a computer, set up at the school as part of their studio equipment, that meets the minimum specifications that are issued to all admitted students following the conclusion of the admission process. In general, the minimum requirement is for a Windows workstation that would have a useful life of at least three years and would be capable of being integrated into the University network and running the suite of software that is distributed to all students connected in the University network. In addition, M.Arch. students are required to pay a yearly $350 computer lab fee for access to the computers, plotters, and printers in the lab and the software on the network server.
Statement of Academic Purpose
Applicants will be required to upload a statement of academic purpose with the admission application in the space provided. Please write a statement of current academic and future career plans as they relate to the Princeton department to which the applicant is applying.

The statement should not exceed 1,000 words and must be written in English.
Please be sure to review the final statement before uploading it and submitting the admission application. If an applicant submitted an application and needs to revise the statement of academic purpose, the applicant may upload the corrected version through the checklist if it is before the deadline. After the deadline, no revised statement of academic purpose will be accepted.
Applicants to the Department of Physics only notes that it is not necessary to describe how one became interested in physics. Applicants are usually better served by devoting the statement to a description of their research background and interests. However, if an applicant's path to applying to the Princeton Department of Physics was unusual or compelling, please feel free to describe it. In any case, the Statement of Purpose should focus on specific research interests at Princeton and any relevant research experience.
Applicants will be required to upload a resume or curriculum vitae with the admission application in the space provided. Resumes or curricula vitae should include employment, activities, community service, education, and academic or professional honors.
Applicants should be sure to review the final resume or curriculum vitae before uploading it and submitting an admission application. If an applicant submitted an application and needs to revise the resume or curriculum vitae, the applicant may upload the corrected version through the checklist if it is before the deadline. After the deadline, no revised resume of curriculum vitae will be accepted.
In order to apply for admission to the Graduate School, an applicant must supply three electronic letters of recommendation. The letters must be written in English and come from faculty members or other individuals well acquainted with the applicant's academic work.
Applicants to the Woodrow Wilson School M.P.A. and M.P.P. programs only must have one professional letter in addition to one academic reference letter. The third letter should come from a faculty member, administrator, or professional who can comment on commitment to public service.
The letters of recommendation must be submitted using our electronic recommendation service as part of the admission application. The applicant will be required to register the recommenders' email addresses within the application. Recommenders will then receive an email with directions on how to proceed. We suggest registering recommenders as early as possible to allow sufficient time for them to submit their letters of recommendation. An application does not need to be submitted in order to register recommenders. Please do not wait to submit an application because of pending letters.
If a recommender uses a letter service (e.g., Interfolio) the applicant will still need to provide the recommender's information in the admission application. Each recommender's email must be unique. If two or more of the recommenders use the same letter service, the recommendation letters may be uploaded as a group under one of the registered recommenders. This is completely acceptable; however, it will not be reflected on the checklist. The Graduate Admission team suggests that the applicant confirms with the letter service that they submitted all the letters requested from them.
For more details on how to manage recommenders, please visit the checklist page.
If a recommender has used the CollegeNET application system previously, he or she will simply log in with the password he or she created. If the recommender has forgotten his or her password, he or she can request a new one by clicking the link in the email received and selecting "Request a New Password". For further assistance, email email@example.com (link sends e-mail).
Applicants must upload a transcript including the key from all attended colleges or universities.

The School of Architecture, Princeton’s center for teaching and research in architectural design, history, and theory, offers advanced degrees at both the master’s and the doctoral levels. The curriculum for the master’s degree, which has both a professional and a post-professional track, emphasizes design expertise in the context of architectural scholarship. Architecture is understood as a cultural practice involving both speculative intelligence and practical know-how. Each student constructs a personal course of study around a core of required courses that represents the knowledge essential to the education of an architect today.
The five-year doctoral program focuses on the history, theory, and criticism of architecture, urbanism, landscape, and building technology. The approach is interdisciplinary, covering a broad range of research interests from an architectural perspective. Working closely with the faculty of the school and allied departments in the University, students build individual programs of study involving at least two years of course work, general examinations, and a dissertation.
In 2014 the School of Architecture launched a new architectural technology Ph.D. track for computation and energy. The new track is an addition to the Ph.D. program that develops and researches new techniques of embodied computation and new systems for energy and environmental performance. It is supported by many connections to the School of Engineering and Applied Science(link is external), particularly with the Department of Computer Science(link is external) and the Andlinger Center for Energy and Environment(link is external). New courses and curriculum for the track have been developed, and with the acquisition of powerful industrial robotic arms and the renovation of the Embodied Computation Laboratory (also known as the Architectural Laboratory), students will actively contribute to hands-on applied research in architecture while becoming experts in their field.
