Courses I might want to take if I'm considering M.Arch for grad school?


<p>I understand that there are M.Arch programs for students who obtained a bachelor's in any field. Still, are there certain classes I might want to take if I'm considering an M.Arch? For instance, should I be taking math classes?</p>

<p>I'm hoping I can take some drawing classes as well.</p>

<p>First you need to develop a portfolio, so some studio art courses and architectural drawing courses are a good way to accumulate portfolio material. </p>

<p>Second, a basic knowledge of art history, especially architecture related, is usually required.</p>

<p>Different colleges have different math/physics requirements. Some require two semesters, some one, some none. If you have a specific M.Arch in mind, check their website for specifics.</p>

<p>At the minimum you should take one term of calculus and one term of physics. You will also need to take the GRE, so your math/science skills must at least be up to the level that gets you through the exam.</p>

<p>Not academic, but other things you could do to prepare for M.Arch are 1) get an internship or summer job at an architectural firm; 2) travel as much as you can and LOOK at architecture.</p>
