Application for FORMAL DUAL DEGREE PROGRAMS

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

Applicants interested in receiving a dual degree in urban and regional planning and architecture (M.U.P./M.Arch.) must complete two separate applications: one for the Urban and Regional Planning and one for Architecture. 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.
