Deadline Extended for Post-Professional Program Applications
Applications are still being accepted for our Master of Science – Architecture and Urban Design graduate programs! New applications for these programs will be reviewed on a rolling basis into the spring, with May 1 being the last day to apply for Fall 2022.
MS in Arch: Applicants must hold a NAAB-accredited professional degree in architecture or the international equivalent.
Urban Design: Applicants to the Urban Design program should hold a professional degree in either architecture or landscape architecture. Applicants from other backgrounds will be considered only in exceptional circumstances and on demonstration of a high level of design ability.
Master of Science in Architecture
The Spitzer School’s Master of Science in Architecture program is directed at students who already hold a professional degree in architecture and who wish to deepen their design abilities and expand their knowledge of contemporary theory, social practice, technology, and environmental systems. The year-long integrated research culminating in a design realization can be completed in two semesters (fall and spring). The remaining six-credit studio provides an opportunity for self-directed research with a faculty member. This program, designed for advanced students from different parts of the world, also affords a supportive faculty and advisory staff that connects students to resources within New York City and beyond.
Urban Design, Master of Urban Planning (MUP)
The Urban Design program is newly centered on the premise that only a combination of leadership, technical, and design skills will lead to meaningful change in the way we think, plan, and construct our built environments. Building on the leadership of the late Michael Sorkin, the program is specifically designed to foster new conversations in response to our urbanized planetary crises and provide transformative alternatives that radically reimagine our cities as equitable, diverse, resourceful, and ecologically nimble.
