Master of Urban Design

UNC Charlotte - School of Architecture
Campus Part time 12 months September 2017 USA Charlotte

The <strong>Master of Urban Design (MUD) degree program</strong> is an applied research and design degree for students who complete a bachelor's degree in architecture, planning, landscape, or another related disciplines. [+]

The Master of Urban Design (MUD) degree program is an applied research and design degree for students who complete a bachelor's degree in architecture, planning, landscape, or another related disciplines. A broad and inclusive admissions policy is used to attract a cross-disciplinary group of students pursuing professional and academic opportunities as well as mid-career enhancement, and to meet a growing demand for expertise in urban design in the global urban society. The program is designed to fit the needs of both full-time and part-time students. The MUD program aims to engage the complex issues faced by contemporary towns and cities, which are being transformed by shifting demographics, global capital, information technology, and environmental sustainability. The MUD program is built on the premise that urban design is a fusion of physical design, policy and implementation strategies. It mediates the professional disciplines of architecture, urban planning, landscape architecture, development, and engineering that together shape our urban environment. Thus it constructs collaborations between these specialists and the citizens affected by urban development and redevelopment. The MUD program takes the Charlotte metropolitan region as a laboratory while simultaneously reexamining issues on the national and global scales through an integrated summer travel-design experience abroad. The program is housed in the University’s Center City Building in uptown Charlotte, which is also home to the UNC Charlotte Urban Institute and the School of Architecture’s own City Building Lab, which provides an important contact for students to engage in funded research projects with the faculty and organizations beyond the campus. Students entering the MUD program with a professional degree in architecture can earn IDP credits towards architectural licensure. Curriculum The MUD program requires 36-credits, which can be completed in twelve months (fall-spring-summer) by full time students. Each of the three semesters includes 6-hours of studio and two 3-hour seminar courses. Applicants with no previous design training are required to enroll in an extra 3-credit hour summer Basics course prior to fall enrollment. To accommodate part-time students, courses can be taken in independent 3 and 6-hr increments, but full-time attendance is required for the final summer semester, including the 5-week travel immersion experience. International Study Experience The MUD program includes an integrated 5-week summer international travel-design immersion experience. In recent years, students have traveled to multiple cities in China to study high-density urbanism, historic regeneration, and new town movements. During the summers of 2015 through 2017, students will travel to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to study hyper-density, verticality, infrastructure, and sustainability in urban design - all issues critical to the revitalization and expansion of urban centers. Dual Degree Options For full-time students with a four-year undergraduate degree in architecture, the MUD program also offers dual degrees with the two-year Master of Architecture (MII-track) professional program at UNC Charlotte. This dual degree can normally be completed in three academic years. Opportunities also exist for additional dual degree options with other UNC Charlotte graduate programs in Geography (Community Planning) and in Business Administration (Real Estate). Students enrolled in the three-year Master of Architecture (MI-track) program may also add the MUD degree to their architecture degree at the end of their program with a separate application submitted during the last year of their architecture studies. The enrollment period for these two degrees comprises 4 calendar years with two summer sessions. Students enrolled in the 5th year of the BArch program at UNC Charlotte may also enroll in the 12-month MUD Program through an expedited application process in the spring semester of their fifth year. This allows students to obtain a professional architecture qualification and a post-professional urban design qualification within a two calendar year period. BArch students must take the GRE exam during the spring semester as an application requirement. The separate portfolio submission may be waived. [-]
