Undergraduates may apply to a five-year professional bachelor's degree program in architecture or interior architecture. If you already have a bachelor's degree in any major, you must apply at the graduate level for the Master of Architecture degree. The Department of Architecture does not offer a second bachelor's degree.
There are four options for graduate study depending upon the applicant's previous degree:
- Master of Architecture (Track I) or Master of Interior Architecture (Track I) - First professional degree program for students who have a non-architectural undergraduate degree. The program is three-years plus one term (or ten terms) in length and begins in the summer.
- Master of Architecture (Track II) or Master of Interior Architecture (Track II) - First professional degree program for students who have a four-year, pre-professional degree in architecture or interior architecture, respectively, from an accredited school. The program is two-years (or six terms) in length.
- Master of Science in Architecture or Master of Science Interior Architecture - Post-professional degree program for students who already hold a professional degree in the area for which they are applying (architecture or interior architecture). This is a 1.5-2 year thesis program that begins in the fall.
- Ph.D. in Architecture - An advanced research degree for students seeking careers in teaching, scholarship, and leadership in sustainable design in universities, practice, policy, and consultancy. Students admitted to this program must already hold a master’s degree in architecture from an accredited program or have a professional degree in architecture and a master’s degree in a related field. Students admitted to this program will carry out a program of advanced study and research in sustainable design.
