Online Master of Architecture – Lawrence Tech University

Master of Architecture

Our influential program was designed to meet the unique needs of ambitious working adults who wish to pursue licensure. Our program is one of only four online M.Arch programs accredited by the prestigious National Architecture Accreditation Board (NAAB).

The M.Arch program offers students a learning experience centered on career-resonant design theory enhanced through immersion in the latest technology, grounded in practice that reflects the realities of the field. Graduates are equipped to hit the ground running with advanced design skills that transfer directly to a real-world approach in architecture and other design-driven industries.

We believe the best learning environments are collaborative in nature, which is why we’ll leverage our extensive network of partnerships and relationships with professionals employed at the largest firms and practices in the region to provide you with resources and opportunities to learn. You’ll receive real-time critiques and feedback from your professors. This collaborative atmosphere extends to your peer network where you can connect with students from all over and share best practices from the workforce.


LTU is one of only four nationally accredited M.Arch programs that can be completed almost entirely online. As an online student, you are completing the same program as students in our M.Arch program on campus.


As a nationally renowned program focused on teaching, our faculty believe in student-centered learning. We keep classes small and coursework challenging but manageable — you’ll never feel like a number in an overcrowded classroom.

Design Build Studio

Aligning with our principles of theoretical practice, the online M.Arch program is coupled with a Design Build Studio that is completed over the summer and is the only course not available online. During this summer session, you’ll join us on campus for four hands-on weekend sessions where you’ll practice applying the knowledge you’ve learned throughout the program.

Different program formats for different academic backgrounds.

Not all aspiring architects have the same academic backgrounds. That’s why we offer 2 program formats to provide the best level of support to earning your masters.

If you hold a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from a NAAB accredited institution,

our format will complement your undergraduate education with 47 additional credit hours of advanced architectural coursework. 

If you hold an undergraduate degree other than Architecture,

our 3+ year format includes an additional set of architectural courses required to become a licensed Architect. Depending on your academic background, you may be exempt from some classes.

“LTU’s M.Arch program has pushed me to do some of my best and most thoughtful design work. I appreciate that the online option provides the same body of knowledge as the on-campus studio, especially with the intelligent professors. The online program gives me more flexibility with my career outside of school and the freedom to live away from the main campus.”
