The Master of Science in Architecture capitalizes on the University of Michigan's unique position as a premier research university with over 95 top five ranked departments.

The University's scope and breadth across various architecture-related disciplines is integral to the course of study in all concentrations. Our program is particularly appropriate for graduates with a B.Arch. or M.Arch. professional degrees in architecture (or equivalent degrees in related fields). The MS provides an additional credential that enables its graduates to pursue research and entrepreneurial practices, careers in the academy, or expand architectural practice.


The degree introduces participants to design and research methods and new knowledge in digital technologies, material systems, design and health, and conservation. Taubman College's Master of Science (MS) is an intensive 3 term (10 month) post-professional academic degree with a focus on design research. Master of Science Degree Concentrations include:

  • Design and Health
  • Digital Technologies
  • Material Systems
  • Conservation

USA requirements for international students

Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.

University requirements


All Master of Science applicants are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships. Applicants are notified whether they have been offered a scholarship award in their admission letter. Scholarships can range from partial to full semesters of tuition. About one half of the incoming Master of Science students typically receive a scholarship. These financial scholarships are possible because of our generous alumni and friends of Taubman College. Because financial resources are limited, applicants are encouraged to seek out other sources of funding as well.
