School of Architecture
Major Requirements

The master of architecture is offered as both Plan A and Plan B programs. The required course work consists of 48 credit hours of graduate work, including the following:

1. Core course work: 6 credit hours in ARCH 600 and ARCH 675;

2. Studio elective: 5 credit hours in ARCH 401, 402, 672, 680/680L, or 681/681L

3. Architectural electives: 13 credit hours (minimum) of electives selected from courses offered by the school;

4. General electives: 12 credit hours (minimum) of electives selected from courses offered by the University; and

5. Either Plan A: 12 credit hours of thesis work (ARCH 700); or Plan B: 12 credit hours of graduate studio work (ARCH 701 and 702).

School of Architecture courses numbered 300 or higher may be used to satisfy architectural elective requirements. Approved courses numbered 300 or higher offered by the University of Hawai‘i may be used to satisfy general elective requirements. Of the 36 credit hours of required non-thesis course work, 12 credit hours must be in courses at the 600- or 700-level. The 48 credit hours required for the master of architecture program do not include any undergraduate professional core course work required to remedy admission deficiencies.

Students are expected to determine their own areas of focus upon examination of the available course work and faculty expertise offered by the school and the University. Before or during the first semester, after satisfaction of the undergraduate professional core, the student will determine in consultation with the graduate chair whether work in this area is more appropriate to Plan A or Plan B. Although students will receive faculty direction and critique, students are expected to be independent and self-motivating in both their focus and research. Students are strongly advised to consider their area of focus early to ensure a complementary relationship between the two and a satisfactory educational experience.

Students who have selected Plan A must submit a written thesis in their specialty and orally defend the completed thesis.

Students who have selected Plan B must present their work at the end of each 700-level studio to a jury open to the public.

The minimum acceptable grade in any course in the master of architecture degree program is C. This includes all courses required for the undergraduate professional core. Students must maintain a B average (3.0 GPA) for all courses completed at the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa and applied toward the degree. Students are expected to pursue graduate studies diligently and complete degree requirements in a timely manner or be subject to academic action, including dismissal.

Additional Information

Specific questions about the bachelor of architecture degree program may be directed to the undergraduate chair of the School of Architecture. Specific questions about the master of architecture degree program may be directed to the graduate chair of the School of Architecture.

The School of Architecture offers limited financial aid opportunities to students who are currently enrolled in degree programs. For more information on student loans and scholarships, contact the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa Financial Aid Services office.

All students are expected to have their own personal computers for studio and class work.

Student Organizations

Students are encouraged to participate in the University of Hawai‘i Chapter of the American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS). The organization serves as the school’s student government and engages in a number of worthwhile activities. At the national level, AIAS is one of five organizations participating in the accreditation of architectural programs.
