The M.S. in Architecture is a post-professional graduate degree in architecture. This program advocates an independent study model, which is inter and cross-disciplinary at its core for stimulating design, research practice and forefront technologies. It is directed to advance a wide variety of investigative studies through design and research in areas of advanced building and digital technologies, urbanism, spatial morphologies, ecologies and ecosystems of varied urban and non-urban habitats, housing forms and systems.
The mission is inseparable from the focus of our undergraduate professional program in architecture and is well aligned with the SPSU mission statement, “…Our mission is to serve both traditional and non-traditional students at the undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education levels; in engineering and engineering technology, the sciences, applied liberal arts, business and professional programs. We work to develop the broader community’s intellectual, cultural, economic and human resources. Facilitated by our innovative faculty, dedicated staff, and supportive campus environment, our learning community empowers students with the ability and vision to transform the future…”
Graduates of this program will possess advanced skills in architectural design, urbanism, and emerging new and existing complementary building technologies and advanced skills in applied research. All of these are vital in setting the stage for facilitating solutions of society’s complex spatial, technical and environmental problems now and in the future. Such competencies in graduates are urgently needed by industry in the new world economy and the design, construction, development sectors of local, regional and global markets.
