This post-professional degree program provides students the opportunity to engage in research specialization or focus beyond that possible within the professional degree programs. Two concentrations are currently available: Architectural Pedagogy, and the History and Culture of Architecture.
Admission requires an application that includes a portfolio, transcripts, a statement of purpose with a specific research focus for the proposed program of study, and three letters of recommendation.
