Dear student,

If you wish to pursue Master of Architecture (M.Arch) from any college, you will have to check if you qualify the eligibility criteria set for the programme in the respective college. Almost all agricultural institutes require the applicants of M.Arch to have a bachelor's degree in architecture and they do not admit students who have not done B.Arch (Bachelor of Architecture).
