Description MIT, the oldest school of architecture in the USA, is also vitally alive to the new issues facing architecture. We are also a small school with excellent resources and a tradition of individualized instruction. This is a school you should know about.

Good schools only exist with good students. MIT is fortunate to attract very good students from all over the world. You will find a place of excellence, diversity, and congeniality.

A school with a diverse population and diverse activities, there are nevertheless only about 250 students who have principal enrollment in the Department of Architecture--under 100 in the professional MArch degree program.

MIT is a leading "research university" and we encourage our faculty to share in these goals; but there is also a strong tradition of devoted teaching. The Department of Architecture can be seen as a mini-university. Not only are there numerous architecture faculty representing an array of positions and expertise, there are special "discipline groups" with outstanding faculty and graduate students in:

  • Architectural Design;
  • Building Technology;
  • History, Theory, and Criticism of Art and Architecture;
  • Visual Arts.

Like everyone else, we can always define additional needs; but, on a comparative basis with other schools of architecture, MIT supports us well not only in faculty, but in space, computation resources, and much more--especially in being a diverse and challenging institution.
