the architecture department and does not require a fee. Acceptance to the graduate year is based on the student’s current grade point average, studio portfolio and proposal for thesis. After successfully completing 180 undergraduate quarter credit hours and all academic requirements for the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in architecture, students are granted the B.F.A. in architecture, whether or not they apply for or are accepted into the graduate year of the professional M.Arch. program. Students accepted into the graduate year of the professional M.Arch. program continue enrollment to take their final 45 graduate quarter credit hours. They receive the B.F.A. in architecture and then are considered graduate students, subject to all graduate academic and financial policies.


Master of Architecture Degree (Postprofessional) The postprofessional Master of Architecture program requires a professional degree plus 45 graduate quarter credit hours (equivalent to 30 semester credit hours). This degree is designed for students who have earned a NAAB-accredited professional architecture degree and who elect to pursue a graduate degree with emphasis in a focused area of study. SCAD offers two postprofessional degrees: one in computer- aided design, the other in urban design. These programs provide initiated students with additional graduate coursework to augment the primary discipline of architecture. The postprofessional M.Arch. program is not a professional degree as defined by the National Architectural Accrediting Board and, therefore, is not accredited by the NAAB.


Master of Arts Degree The Master of Arts degree is an initial graduate degree that requires at least 45 quarter credit hours (equivalent to 30 semester credit hours) of graduate level courses in the selected area, complemented by historical, theoretical and related studies. The program requires a minimum of one year for completion with all 45 quarter hours in residency at SCAD (can include eLearning and off-campus study). The M.A. culminates with a written thesis or graduate project such as a portfolio or group exhibition, presentation or other creative work product demonstrating a high degree of intellectual or artistic proficiency accompanied by a written component. Formal faculty reviews of sample student work and progress are conducted. The M.A. degree program may be research and/ or practice oriented to offer students a focused educational experience while engaging in dialogue on the history, theory and practice of the discipline. Students who wish to pursue the M.A. degree should possess a commitment to explore a field in depth as well as a desire to foster their individual vision and capabilities; to develop a high degree of proficiency in their technical, creative, expressive or analytical skills; and to participate in a vibrant university community. The M.A. degree prepares students for positions in related areas or serves as preparation for advanced graduate degrees such as the Master of Fine Arts or the Doctor of Philosophy in academic disciplines. In some programs the M.A. degree may be followed by


additional study at SCAD leading to an M.F.A. degree. Students planning to continue the next quarter (excluding summer) from the M.A. to the M.F.A. in the same major should contact the office of graduate studies prior to the conclusion of their M.A. studies. Approval must be given by the department chair of the area of study.


Master of Arts in Teaching Degree The Master of Arts in Teaching program requires 60 quarter credit hours (equivalent to 40 semester credit hours) to be completed in one full year (four quarters) of intensive study and field experience with all quarter hours in residence at SCAD (can include eLearning). The M.A.T. is designed to meet the State of Georgia standards for initial certification to teach art or drama in PK through grade 12. Graduates may go on to teach elsewhere, however, as Georgia participates in an interstate agreement and shares certification reciprocity with 51 jurisdictions across the United States. Teacher candidates in the M.A.T. program acquire the


fundamental principles of teaching and learning, the discipline- specific principles of teaching art or drama, and the ability to adapt these principles to a variety of settings. To maintain an artistically stimulating environment, candidates also pursue graduate level courses in their arts disciplines. M.A.T. candidates learn how to shape creating and performing


experiences so that their projects and design challenges elicit high student engagement, consider cultural and historical contexts, and foster higher order thinking, collaboration and inquiry. In addition to project-based learning, candidates become familiar with general instructional strategies and teaching strategies associated with brain-based learning research and cognitive development. Candidates also learn how to employ arts-specific strategies that have evolved from experiential and aesthetic education, discipline-based art education, and visual thinking. Coursework in the M.A.T. program includes a field


component, with the exception of the studio electives. Thus, candidates learn theories and methods, grounded in practical experience. The program begins in the summer, giving candidates the opportunity to observe students as they learn in non-traditional environments such as specialized art programs, classes, and museum-based programs, as well as in traditional classroom settings.


Master of Fine Arts Degree The Master of Fine Arts degree is recognized as the terminal or highest degree for most art and design professions. The M.F.A. degree program requires 90 quarter credit hours (equivalent to 60 semester credit hours) of graduate level courses in studio, art historical, theoretical and related areas. The program requires a minimum of two years for completion, with the final 45 quarter hours in residence at SCAD (can include eLearning and off- campus study). The program culminates with a thesis exhibition, project, presentation, or other publicly-presented creative work demonstrating professional level competency, accompanied by a written component and reviewed by a graduate thesis committee. Formal faculty reviews of sample student work and progress are conducted. The M.F.A. requires at least one field or teaching internship to provide students with a mentored experience of professional practice. Students who wish to pursue the M.F.A. degree should


possess a high level of ability, commitment, and the desire to develop their personal vision; to evolve a mature understanding of their chosen field’s background, principles and practices as well as its broader cultural context; to gain technical mastery in their chosen discipline; to inform advanced art and design creation with critical and conceptual studies; and to interact with fellow students and professors within a dynamic and challenging
