  • Description:
  • The Master of Urban Design degree program is an advanced, interdisciplinary program of study with a concentrated time for completion. The program's goals are to further train designers who are able to work effectively in teams across a large range of scales and with a well-developed understanding of urban places and the interdependencies of the fabric of buildings, landscapes, public ways, and the social interactions that shape them.

    Evidence of high-quality academic and professional work, including minimum GRE and TOEFL score requirements.
    Two years of professional experience after completion of the professional degree is recommended but not required. Applicants will be evaluated based on the quality of their work.
