The Master of Science Program is a non-professional program in advanced architectural studies and is oriented toward advanced practice, scholarship and research. Applicants may have previous degrees in architecture or other related fields. The program accepts students with a professional degree in a design or design-related field, as well as students with a Baccalaureate degree in a non-design field who wish to pursue an area of study offered in the Master of Science degree. There are currently eight areas of specialization in the fields of architectural design and its supporting technology and engineering disciplines. The areas of specialization offer flexibility for cross area course work and multi-disciplinary concentration. Graduates are well-qualified to serve in advanced practice or continue studies in a PhD program.
