Graduate Architecture Programs

Graduate programs in the Department of Architecture include studies in architecture, computer graphics, and history of architecture and urban development.

Professional Master of Architecture (M.Arch.)

A top-ranked program in the country, this fully accredited professional degree program is for individuals from diverse disciplines and backgrounds interested in practicing or teaching architecture.

Post-Professional Advanced Architectural Design (M.S.)

The Advanced Architectural Design (AAD) program (formerly the post-professional Master of Architecture, or M.Arch.II, program) offers an M.S. degree and is open to applicants possessing a bachelor of architecture (B.Arch.) or professional master of architecture (M.Arch.) degree or the international equivalent.

History of Architecture and Urban Development (Ph.D.)

The History of Architecture and Urban Development (HAUD) program offers a Ph.D. degree, and draws upon faculty and resources from both AAP's Department of Architecture and other departments in the university.

Computer Graphics (M.S.)

The program of Computer Graphics offers a M.S. degree, and draws upon faculty primarily from Computer Science and Architecture.

Matter Design Computation (M.S.)

The new Matter Design Computation program offers a two-year M.S. degree and is housed in the graduate field of architecture. This multidisciplinary and collaborative research degree draws upon faculty from the departments of Architecture, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Fiber Science and Apparel Design, Materials Science and Engineering, Computer Science, and Biological and Environmental Engineering. The program encourages enrollment of students from backgrounds in the sciences as well as architecture. Courses of study create positive exchange across disciplines to include architectural research in the areas of material computation, adaptive architecture, and digital fabrication. Specific sub-topics within these broad categories include bioinspired design, biomimicry, sustainability, ecological architecture, computational design, experimental structures, and applications of material science.
