Dual Degrees

As an interdisciplinary school, Taubman College offers students opportunities to pursue combined degrees.

Dual degree programs enable students to earn two degrees in considerably less time than if each degree were earned separately. Four formally structured dual degree programs enable students to study for a dual master of architecture/master of urban planning degree, a dual master of architecture/master of urban design degree, a dual master of architecture/master of business administration degree, or a dual master of architecture/master of engineering degree. Students can also pursue student-initiated dual degrees with a wide range of other programs. Students wishing to pursue a dual degree program other than those described are advised to contact the college registrar. Requests are approved on an individual basis.

 

Master of Architecture (M.Arch.) and Master of Urban Planning (M.U.P.) Dual Degree

Applicants interested in receiving a dual degree in architecture and urban and regional planning (M.Arch. / M.U.P.) must complete two separate applications: one for Architecture and one for Urban and Regional Planning. An application fee is required for both programs. Each program will make an admission decision independently of the other. Only if both programs approve admission is the applicant considered a dual degree student.

To be eligible for admission, a student must have a B.S. degree from Taubman College or an equivalent degree earned at another institution. Graduate students enrolled in the 3 year M.Arch. degree must complete all required 300 and 400 level course work before applying to the dual M.U.P./ M.Arch. Admission to both programs is normally limited to the fall semester, but winter admission may be considered in special cases. The recommended procedure is to apply to each program for the same term. It is possible, however, to apply to either program once enrollment has taken place in the other.

Master of Architecture (M.Arch.) and Master of Urban Design (M.U.D.) Dual Degree

An applicant interested in receiving a dual degree in architecture and urban design (M.Arch./M.U.D.) must complete two separate applications: one for the Master of Architecture Program and one for the Master of Urban Design Degree. An application fee is required for both programs. Each program will make an admission decision independently of the other. Only if both programs approve admission is the applicant considered a dual degree student.

To be eligible for admission, a student must have a B.S. degree from Taubman College or an equivalent degree earned at another institution. Graduate students enrolled in the 3 year M.Arch. degree must complete all required 300 and 400 level course work before applying to the dual M.Arch./M.U.D. Program. The recommended procedure is to apply to the M.Arch program first and, during the first year at Taubman College, apply to the Master of Urban Design program for dual degree status. In years two and three, students would take courses in both urban design and architecture, leading to masters degrees in both programs.

Master of Architecture (M.Arch.) and Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) Dual Degree

An applicant interested in receiving a dual degree in architecture and business (M.Arch./M.B.A.) must complete two separate applications: one to Taubman College's Master of Architecture Program and one to the Business School for the full-time M.B.A. program available from:

To be eligible for admission, a student must have a B.S. degree from Taubman College or an equivalent earned at another institution. Graduate students enrolled in the 3 year M.Arch. degree must complete all required 300 and 400 level course work before applying to the joint M.Arch./M.B.A. program.

Although the joint degree program is not available to students who have previously earned the M.Arch. or the M.B.A. degree, a student enrolled in the first year of either program may apply. The recommended procedure is to file an application to each program for the same term. An application fee is required for both programs. Each program makes an admission decision independently of the other. Only if both programs approve admission is the applicant considered a joint degree student. If admission to each program is granted for the same term, one unit must apply its deferred admission procedures, depending upon which program the student chooses for the first year of study.

The GMAT is required for admission to the Business School. Admission is for the fall term. A special notation, indicating the joint program, should be made on the front of the M.B.A. application.
