List of the best grad schools for architecture. These colleges and universities offer the best post-grad architectural programs in the universe (which is a pretty well-designed place). The next Gaudi will come from the lecture halls of one of the best architecture grad schools -- and it will make all those student loans worth it. This list of top graduate programs for architects should attract all those interested in interior design, landscaping, and construction management. Students will also have to prepare to sleep about one hour each night, as their lives will be spent in the studios on campus -- constructing models and drawing sketches. Grad school is a necessity for the aspiring architect so that you can legally design homes with knowledge of construction. Eventually students can graduate from one of these architectural programs and join an architecture firm or gather their own roster of clients. Maybe it will be you designing P-Diddy's next mansion, but Mr. Diddy/Daddy will likely want to see a resume before he lets you plan his billion-dollar home. And when he sees that resume, a master's degree in architecture from one of these top schools for architects will go a long way for your career.List of the best grad schools for architecture.
