A post-professional degree, the Master of Architectural Studies (M.A.S.), is offered to applicants who already hold a professional degree in architecture and wish to pursue further investigations in design or design-related topics.

Students are offered an intensive curriculum in one of four areas of concentration: Sacred Space / Cultural Studies, Emerging Technologies and Media, Real Estate Development, and Urban Practice. The Master of Architectural Studies is designed to take advantage of the resources offered in the nation’s capital in combination with coursework at The Catholic University of America and the institutions that comprise the Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area.
