"Studying Architecture for my Master's Degree at the University of Pennsylvania was a great experience. Instructors taught a range of approaches towards design and we were given the opportunity to experiment and express ourselves. Facilities have also improved following my graduation, allowing for greater access to technology for students."

"It's a prestigious school with many driven and successful people around. It's ridiculously expensive though."

"I feel that the largest driving forces for deciding to pursue a master of architecture degree in this university is its prominent interdisciplinary programs; in a discipline undergoing immense changes as time progresses, institutions ought to be grounds at which different professions merge to evolve along with the rapid development the world is going through. More and more students are pursuing additional degrees and certifications alongside their main masters programs to strengthen their skill set and ultimately make a bigger impact in the professional community; I have colleagues pursuing various breadths of professions, mostly related to constructed space, which consequently pushes me to better my own palette. Being able to jump between the boundaries in majors, being versed in more than just one professional concentration is something more readily achieved in an institution with a workable interdisciplinary system such as Penn."

"The Master of Architecture program at Penn dovetails together a remarkable number of ideas and provocations pertaining to the fields of architecture and design, while simultaneously providing a comprehensive practical base of information. In particular, the program emphasizes digital fabrication, and appears to seek to be on the avant-garde of design methodologies. However, the time commitment to the program is significant, and the costs of software and other materials necessary for project completion can present a financial burden."

"PennDesign has an excellent Masters in Architecture program that gives us access to top professionals in our industry. However as with most MArch programs, the amount of work required for this degree seems to be excessive."

"The school provides a very in depth picture of the architectural field, but manages to also have a very large breadth of knowledge through the faculty as well."
