The Master of Urban Design (MUD) is an intensive post-professional degree program for individuals who seek a career in urban design practice or for current planning and design professionals who want to enhance and expand their existing practice with urban design knowledge and expertise.

To be admitted to the Master of Urban Design program, an individual must hold an accredited master’s degree in architecture, urban planning, or landscape architecture, or an accredited professional undergraduate degree in architecture, urban planning, or landscape architecture. Students may apply to the program in anticipation of earning the prerequisite degree prior to the start of their Master of Urban Design studies.

To earn the Master of Urban Design degree, a student must complete nine courses totaling 36 credits, which consist of a mix of lecture courses, studios, and a final capstone or travel studio requirement. The Master of Urban Design program is designed to be accomplished in a single calendar year (fall, spring, and summer semesters) as a full-time, immersive experience; however, students with qualifying circumstances may receive permission to complete the program over a longer timeframe.
