M.Arch + M.S.URP
Dual Degree Program – Master of Architecture + M.S. Urban and Regional Planning
Length: Minimum 3.5 years, 85 graduate semester hours
This dual degree program is designed to offer the opportunity for qualified graduate students to study both Master of Architecture (M.Arch) and Master of Science in Urban and Regional Planning (M.S.URP). Both the Master of Architecture (M.Arch), and Master of Science in Urban and Regional Planning (MSURP) degree programs are within the College of Architecture, Construction and Planning, based at the UTSA Downtown Campus. This integrated professional track combining the M.Arch. and M.S.URP degrees provides architecture students an opportunity to complete their degree program in architecture while acquiring urban and regional planning expertise. Through this dual degree program, urban and regional planning students can develop physical design skills and the possibility to acquire professional licensure in architecture. Through completion of an accredited professional degree that integrates physical building design with considerations of land use, public policy, economics, environment and culture, graduates of the dual degree program will enter the work force well-equipped to comprehensively lead multi-disciplinary projects.
Applicants will be admitted to the M.Arch and M.S.URP degree programs independently, according to the admission schedule and policies of each degree program. Applicants must submit all admission materials to each program independently and on time. Admission to the dual degree program may occur after a student has already matriculated in the M.Arch, M.S.URP, or both degree programs, as long as the student is still within the first half of each program.
Students should refer to the Department of Architecture catalog for M.Arch and the College of Architecture, Construction and Planning catalog for M.S.URP program admission and degree requirements.
