About

The University of Cincinnati’s Master of Science in Architecture Program is a post-professional degree program of advanced theoretical studies in architecture with a focus on the acquisition of critical skills related to architectural production, both built and theoretical.

Overview

Students enrolled in the Architecture program at the University of Cincinnati study architectural history and theories as these relate to practice. The program exposes students to a range of concepts in the field and fosters the ability to question and assess the built environment and the documents that relate to it.

Intended primarily for students already in possession of a graduate degree in architecture or a related field such as interior design, planning, or landscape architecture, the MS program has a common core consisting of two years of coursework in architectural theories and research methods.

Success

Applicants to the MS Program in Architecture must demonstrate a commitment to the critical study of architecture and related design fields, including interior design, urban design, and landscape architecture. Prior education or working experience in architecture or a related field is desirable. Excellent writing skills and an interest in theoretical research are essential. Students whose English writing or speaking skills are not adequate for the demands of the curriculum must enroll in advanced, graduate-level English as a Second Language coursework prior to and sometimes in tandem with program coursework.

Career

The program prepares researchers, educators, and practitioners for advanced scholarly, pedagogic, and professional work in architecture and related fields. Most graduates of the program become full-time professors or practitioners of architecture. Other career opportunities for graduates of the MS and PhD in Architecture include historic preservation, public policy, curating, journalism, and institutional administration.
