- Path A is for applicants who hold a Bachelor's degree, but do not meet the minimum requirements of a Bachelor of Science in Architecture.
- A minimum of 104 credit hours in architectural design, theory, and practice is required of Path A candidates for the professional degree in architecture (M.Arch). Due to the rigor of the program (not unlike any other professional school-law or medicine), students entering this program are advised to discontinue outside employment.
- Advancement in Professional Degree Program Path A is predicated upon successful and timely completion of required coursework, as well as an annual review of the student’s portfolio of design work by the Graduate Studies Committee of the Architecture Program.
- In addition to completing an introductory curriculum beginning in the fall of the first semester of enrollment, students must also complete the Path B core curriculum of 39 credit hours. The core curriculum of this course of study is ARCH 5325, 5326, 5329, 5331, and 24 hours of advanced studio. Students approved by the Committee on Graduate Studies to substitute a design thesis for the last semester of the required studio sequence will also take ARCH 5363 prior to enrollment in ARCH 5693.
Students completing UT Arlington's four-year professional undergraduate interior design degree may apply for advanced standing in the Path A Program.
