Architecture and Design
Program | Faculty | Master's
At the graduate level, the Architecture and Design program offers Master of Architecture and Master of Science in Design degrees. The Master of Science degree was established in 1976. The Master of Architecture degree program is fully accredited by the National Architectural Accreditation Board (NAAB).
The Architecture and Design program works to create a learning environment in which all students can discover and develop their own design process and professional potential. Students in the program are encouraged to critique the work of fellow students as a way to develop their analytic skills and establish ongoing working relationships.
The Master of Architecture and Master of Science in Design degree programs offer to selected qualified students teaching and research assistance that carries a semester stipend and a waiver of tuition, the Curriculum Fee, and most of the Health Fee in accordance with University guidelines (see the Fellowships and Assistantships section elsewhere in this Bulletin).
In addition to the university graduate application requirements, applicants to the Master of Architecture and Master of Science in Design degree programs must submit a portfolio or representations of their work with a maximum of 20 pages illustrating the ability to see and think in two and three dimensions, to compose, and to experiment. Applicants to the Master of Architecture degree program are required to submit GRE scores and three letters of recommendation. All application materials must be received by Febuary 1 for fall admission only.
