Master of Science in Architectural Studies
Program Description
The Master of Science in Architectural Studies is appropriate for those who have a professional degree in architecture and wish to acquire special skills and knowledge at the master's level. The curriculum is essentially elective in nature, and the typical candidate must be self-motivated, goal-oriented, and able to work in a context that is often individualized in nature. Due to the short duration of the curriculum path, students should have a well-formulated and faculty-approved educational agenda before entering the MSArch program. The Master of Science degree is not a professional degree and does not qualify a recipient of this degree for licensure.

Students with degrees in fields other than architecture may be also admitted to the MSArch program on a special basis. This may require additional course work at the undergraduate level be completed together with the normal graduate course curriculum for the degree.

Typical profiles of candidates for this degree program include but are not limited to:

Graduates who possess a professional Bachelor of Architecture degree. 
Graduates of a non-professional Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies degree who do not wish to gain licensure.
Graduates who possess a bachelor's degree in an allied field such as:
        • Interior Design
        • City Planning
        • Industrial Design
        • Building Construction and Construction Technology
        • Engineering
        • Computer Graphics
