The Master’s in Architecture degree program at Fairmont State has a focus on the cultural, geographic, and historical conditions that distinguish the character of the Appalachian Region, and provides an opportunity to address concerns relevant to the revitalization of smaller cities and towns, particularly those within a more rural environment. The curriculum further provides opportunities for research and project applications in sustainable and green design principles. The program advocates an examination of the past, in order to prepare for the present and future challenges in architecture.

Arch) consists of 42 semester hours of graduate architecture courses in addition to a pre-requisite Bachelor’s in Architecture (composed of 126 semester hours at Fairmont State, of which 58 semester hours are general studies).
