1. Don't need M Arch to become registered architect!
2. NCARB doies NOT register you as architect-- this is done by each state, so check the state you are interetsed in.
3. NCARB does offer the ARE exam which you must take to become registered [they verify results to your state]
4. Many states do regulate drafters, etc, IF they use the word "architect" or architectural as part of their chosen title-- that is illegal in those states.
5. Neeed bucks to become contractor-- buy equiupment, hire workers, etc. Also high risks, etc.
6. Don't need Masters to becom landscape architect; generally same as for architect as to registration-- NCARB not involved; no exam in most states.
In general M Arch is good for those looking for an academic career in architecture, but it is not necessary for a good, productive career in general practice.
Get books on practice, education, careers, alternatives, etc. by Roger K. Lewis, and Dana Cuff [check]
