Concurrent Master's Degree: Architecture to Interior Architecture

Degree Requirements | Sample Curriculum Outline


Degree Overview

Students enrolled in either the architecture or interior architecture graduate programs may apply to enroll in a concurrent master’s degree option that provides an accelerated path toward attaining two accredited professional degrees: the master of interior architecture (CIDA accredited) and a master of architecture (NAAB accredited). Recipients of concurrent architecture and interior architecture degrees graduate as facile designers who are able to engage in a variety of broad and specific issues concerning: scales of sites and spaces, detail and materiality, sustainability, and collaborative processes.

Students without advanced placement who are required to complete fourteen studios can finish the concurrent degrees in a minimum of four years. This timeline includes one additional 584-level summer studio.

Graduate students with advanced placement can adapt the sample curricula to their special circumstances, resulting in a 10-studio minimum. A separate application procedure will be determined.
