Urban design looks beyond the design of individual buildings in order to provide sustainable design solutions for cities, towns, landscapes and campuses. The post-professional degree program allows students to focus their studies in urban design, one of the Architecture Program’s nationally-recognized strengths. Study in the post-professional program can be complemented by coursework in urban planning, historic preservation and real estate development.
Applicants who already possess a professional degree in architecture, such as a Bachelor of Architecture, Master of Architecture or Doctor of Architecture, may apply to the Master of Science in Architecture post-professional degree program. Many applicants to the program already have professional experience and/or professional registration.
Post-professional Master of Science in Architecture degree candidates must complete at least 30 credits to be awarded a degree. Typically, students complete the degree requirements within three semesters of the initiation of the program. Additionally, internships with local firms and public agencies provide practical exposure for students enrolled in this program. Applicants are also considered for teaching assistantships and graduate assistantships.
