"I attended the University of Kansas because of the highly sought five year masters of architecture program that they offer. It is an accelerated program that you do not need to reapply for after a certain amount of years. It lived up to its hype and offered me a great education and worked directly with me to offer me a personal educational experience."

"KU is a great place to call home and everyone around you feels like family! Students come from a wide variety of background and experiences, and professors have so many interests and specialties. There are so many resources all around you that help in your school work as well as personal life so that you really feel like you belong. It is an affordable school with great academics, pushing you to do your best but not overwhelming you. I would recommend this school to all aspiring students, and I will look back onto my years here fondly and lovingly. Rock Chalk!"

"I am pursing a Master of Architecture degree from the University of Kansas. Overall I have been satisfied with the quality of my education and the projects I was able to pursue. Through my experience I have gained valuable knowledge in design development and various computer programs. There should be more integration of technology within the courses especially in studio. As technology furthers, courses need to adapt to this changing environment. Student tutors and faculty should continue to be an integral component in furthering education by teaching new programs and providing experience/insight. In finding work after graduation, more workshops, portfolio critiques, and networking opportunities would be extremely valued."

"At the University of Kansas I feel I am getting a hands on experience in Architecture. I've been given real world examples of winning clients by going through a competitive interview process already in my first semester. The graduate program involves a lot of hard work and long hours in the studio, but the hard work pays off in excellent work for your portfolio and architectural experience. The professors are very involved and are always available for extra help and analysis of your work. The only thing I feel is lacking with KU's architecture program is the technology; not enough computer labs or computer program tutorial opportunities such as Revit or the Adobe suite."

"KU was a first choice for Graduate school. The education is ranked number 13 among all graduate architecture programs and the career support after graduation is really good. The course is designed so you are involved in professional practice during school, that way when you graduate, you aren't thrown to the wolves in the career field. KU has been a great education so far and the next year and a half will be very beneficial."

"The curriculum for the master of architecture program is flexible and willing to adapt to what you are trying to get out of the program. So far the classes have taught me practical skills that I will need once I graduate. A con would be the facilities. They have good computer labs but as for the studio space, architecture department, and wood shop facilities they are lacking. The department also is small and do not have a large staff to help all the students out."

"I love the University of Kansas School of Architecture. We ranked #14 our of 99 graduate schools for architecture last year. It contains a very rich and well diverse faculty and staff, giving each student a broad range of knowledge and opportunities to branch out within the design field. The connection to the community within the Kansas City area is great. This gives excellent networking opportunities as well as servicing the community for the greater good. There are two cons within this program: there are very little scholarships and GTA positions available, and the KU financial aid structure makes it very difficult to help with cost of living expenses after the cost of attendance is covered. Despite the financial struggles, I feel my master's degree from KU will be rewarding for my future goals."

"The Masters of Architecture program at the University of Kansas offers students an opportunity to be exposed to a holistic approach of architecture. The faculty on campus genuinely cares about each student’s education and is more than willing to help any way they can. The program is intense and requires a large time commitment, however the experience is worth the hard work."
