The Department of Architecture has about 275 undergraduate students, a full-time resident faculty of 24, and six to 10 visiting faculty. The intensive, five-year architecture program graduates about 55 students each year.
The Professional Master of Architecture program seeks individuals interested in practicing architecture, teaching architecture, and otherwise contributing to the culture of architecture as a social and spatial reality. This program, designed for applicants who possess a four-year undergraduate bachelor's degree in any area, joins Cornell's renowned B.Arch. degree program and provides an additional option for professional education in architecture. The program admitted its first students in fall 2004.
