If you are interested in exploring the intertwined relationship between architecture and planning, this dual master’s program is a great option for you. The program combines a master’s in regional planning (MRP) from the Department of Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning and a master’s in architecture (MArch) from the Department of Art, Architecture, and Art History.

You’ll spend two semesters of full-time study in each program, then divide the remaining coursework between the two programs. For your work towards the MArch, you’ll gain a technical foundation and intensive studio and skill training applicable to a wide variety of design issues. Your work towards the MRP will combine theoretical, historical, social, political, and technical dimensions of planning practice with an emphasis on practice through studio and service to nearby communities. 

This dual degree program is one of only a handful in the nation, giving you a unique opportunity to pursue a desired skill set. You’ll be well prepared for careers in policy, planning, design, and development in the public, nonprofit, and private sectors.
