Master of Architecture

I met with a counselor at the University of Utah yesterday to discuss entering the Master of Architecture program offered there. I’ve been thinking about pursuing my Master degree for a little while, but it wasn’t until a couple of weeks ago that I decided to look into an architectural program. Since I already have a Bachelor degree in something other than architecture, I would be required to enter the 3+ years graduate program instead of the 2-year program.

Since the application deadline was in January, I can’t enter the program until Summer 2011, which actually works out great because I have to take a semester of Calculus and two semesters of Physics before I can enter the program. I wasn’t required to take them for my Bachelor degree. I am also planning to take a course in drawing, and maybe a few others that will help me in this degree. I have never taken a course in drawing since I mostly do my artistic work on the computer, but the counselor said that hand drawings are weighed more heavily than digital art during the acceptance process.

I’ve also been researching other universities which offer this degree and some of them require me to take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), so I guess I will be taking that sometime in the next year also.

Now I just need to figure out how to pay for all this…
