College of Architecture + Planning

​T​he College of Architecture and Planning welcomes applications to our Master of Architecture program from students with a variety of professional and educational backgrounds. The goal for faculty is to admit students who are likely to succeed in completing the requirements for the degree and whose interests fit with its educational capacities. 

All of the required application materials help us to evaluate your potential for graduate study and to pair your interests with our strengths. No one component (such as a GRE score, if required) ensures admission nor precludes it; we make a judgment based on the entire application. 

Students are admitted to begin classes in fall semester only.
