Graduate Admissions

At Cornell AAP, we teach and practice architecture, fine arts, and city and regional planning to build a more sustainable, just, and resilient world.

Our graduate programs span many fields and provide different options for rigorous theoretical training and studio experiences that encourage imagination, technical creativity, critical thinking, a sense of history, and the development of social, ethical, and artistic approaches to study and practice. Most graduate programs are administered through the Graduate School at Cornell University, and detailed information about applying, financial aid, and other requirements can be found on their website. Admission to the professional Master of Architecture (M.Arch.) program is administered solely through Cornell AAP.
