The post-professional MUD is a 36-credit, calendar-year program. Many students partner the MUD with the MArch, MLA or MURP degree programs, which can reduce required MUD coursework by up to twelve (12) credits.
All internships are taken with professional firms in the region, including AECOM, Civitas, Design Workshop, Norris Design, RNL Design, OZ Architecture, studioINSITE, and Tryba Architects. Electives can be taken in any program in the University of Colorado system. College units including the Colorado Center for Community Development (CCCD) frequently hire MUD students as research assistants (RAs) and the Departments of Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Planning and Design often hire teaching assistants (TAs) from our incoming MUD students.
