Graduate students in the Department of Architecture can earn two master's degrees in 14 terms. Students apply to one degree first (MArch or MIArch). After enrollment, students must make an appointment with their academic advisor and request their intent to complete both degrees. Students need to submit a new UO graduate application in order to apply to the additional major.

Current SAE Students: Concurrent Master's Degree Application Process

  1. Students interested in pursuing both degrees shall meet with advisors to begin discussion and to go over the suggested curriculum and how it can be adapted to their existing skills and knowledge. Program managers from both majors will need to give approval, provide advice, and coordinate progress. If the program managers approve the concurrent degree request, students will then meet with the School of Architecture & Environment advisor.

Note: A new UO Graduate Application must be submitted prior to the term that the concurrent degree would start in order to officially apply to the additional major. Students who are interested in pursuing this program are encouraged to apply for their concurrent degree during the spring term of their first year, so that they can get familiar with the academic climate and requirements of the master’s curriculum in their second discipline.

UO Graduate School Application

  1. The Declaration of Concurrent Degrees form must be completed, printed, signed, and submitted to the Manager of Student Services in the School of Architecture & Environment, who will forward it to the Graduate School—ideally as soon as the student has been admitted to both programs, but no later than three terms prior to the term in which the student would complete either or both degrees. Visit the Graduate School's Academic Forms page to download the Declaration of Concurrent Degrees form.
  2. No later than the last Friday of the term preceding the term in which you plan to graduate (with both degrees), you must apply for graduation and submit a completed Concurrent Degree Program Plan to the School of Architecture & Environment's Manager of Student Services, who will submit it to the Graduate School.
