The Syracuse Master of Science in Architecture program supports independent, timely, and innovative design research projects in the field of architecture and urbanism. This 30-credit course of study can be completed in two or three semesters and admits students whose areas of interest can be matched with the expertise and ongoing research of the School’s faculty.
We seek theoretically or speculatively inclined architects and emerging scholars whose research can be applied to pressing contemporary problems and opportunities. The program encourages transdisciplinary research that explores the capacity of architecture to engage new constituencies or operate in new contexts, although the range of possible projects is as diverse as the faculty’s interests. Each spring, M.S. Architecture students participate in a symposium in Syracuse where they present the results of their design and research.
Please note that this program does not meet the licensure requirements to become an architect in New York and is not considered licensure qualifying in New York.
