The dual Master of Architecture and Master of City and Regional Planning degree program provides an education for those who wish to engage directly in the process of city building.
The program is intended to meet the needs of planning agencies, consultants, institutions, and architectural firms for graduates who can deal competently with the design complexities of urban areas.
The curriculum is comprised of the core requirements for each of the two professional programs and, in addition, a set of dual requirements that focus upon urban design as a common ground linking the theory and practice of the two disciplines. The dual curriculum builds upon five major bodies of material:
In order to enroll in the program, students must apply separately and be admitted independently to each program. We encourage students to apply to the dual degree program before beginning studies in either program. The program graduate advisors will forward applications on file in response to a request from a student. These materials will be reviewed during the regular admissions schedule in place in the relevant program.
Both degrees will be awarded simultaneously. So, please note that students enrolled in the dual degree program may not receive either degree until they have completed the requirements of both degrees.
The Dual Degree Program in Architecture requires the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and a portfolio submission.
