Concurrent Master's Degree: Architecture Track II to Community & Regional Planning

Degree Requirements | Sample Curriculum Outline


Degree Overview

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 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). Graduate students in the department who are interested in both of these disciplinary areas have opportunities to take coursework in either discipline.

The university’s “concurrent degree” method means that students complete course/studio credits for one master’s degree and subsequently finish the remaining credits for the second degree, resulting in the awarding of the two degrees concurrently. Graduate students in the Department of Architecture can earn two master's degrees. Within the department, students apply to one degree first (MArch or MIArch).


Degree Requirements (114 Credits)

The Graduate School requires a minimum of 45 graduate credits in each program of which 30 are in the major and 9 at 600.
