Focus your studies with a specialization in one of our certificate offerings.
Pursue a Specialized Course of Study
Certificate programs require 15 hours of focused study, which can be accommodated within the degree plan without additional coursework. There are two patterns of study for the certificates: studio + three seminars or five seminars.
Certificates are opportunities to add a specialization to a graduate degree in architecture. The areas of specialization offered by the School of Architecture reflect faculty depth in a particular area of inquiry. Interested students should apply to the certificate program before their last semester. The certificates are also available to non-degree seeking students.
