Introduction

KU Edwards Campus

The post-professional M.A. in Architecture offers 2 distinct programs. The architectural management program is oriented to the administration and practice of architecture and related disciplines. It is offered on the KU Edwards Campus in Overland Park. Classes in this program are intended to

  1. Provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to become effective participants in the management of a design organization;
  2. Provide information about the management of planning, design, and construction projects; and
  3. Expose students to management issues facing the design professions.

The curriculum draws on the disciplines of business management, planning, computer science, law, and architecture to expose students to fundamental concepts of management as they relate to the business of architecture. A total of 36 credit hours of course work is required. The curriculum consists of required courses in Financial and Economic Issues, Organizational Issues, Project Delivery, Computer Applications, Law and the Design Professions, Marketing, and Contemporary Issues in Architectural Management. Students may enroll in 9 to 12 hours of graduate credit outside the required courses in the architectural management curriculum. 3 to 6 hours in the 36-hour course of study are in the preparation of a written project or thesis, or in additional course work in an area of management to prepare for a final written examination.
