The M.Arch. program is appropriate for those seeking a professional degree to practice architecture. The M.S. and Ph.D. programs are relevant for those seeking careers in research and teaching in architecture and its related areas. The M.A. in Design program is intended for those who wish to pursue an original creative/research project and is not the program for students who seek applied professional training in graphic design, illustration, etc.
