The program has matured to include undergraduate and graduate degrees with a focus on designing for a sustainable and innovative future.
The curriculum has been designed specifically for students to be able to leverage other majors at ASU. Students can pursue concurrent options such as sustainability, real estate development, construction management, interior design, landscape architecture and many more.
Applicants must fulfill the requirements of both the Graduate College and the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts.
Applicants are eligible to apply to the program if they have earned a bachelor's or master's degree from a regionally accredited institution.

Additional Admission Information
An applicant whose native language is not English must provide proof of English proficiency regardless of current residency.
Admission Requirements to the Two-Year Pathway:
Applicants must have completed a four-year Bachelor of Science degree with a major in architectural studies or similar pre-professional degree in architecture. The undergraduate degree must be granted by an institution that is recognized by ASU and offers a National Architectural Accreditation Board (NAAB) accredited degree program in architecture.
Admission Requirements to the Three-Year Pathway:
Applicants must have earned a baccalaureate or graduate degree in any field other than architectural studies.
If a student is assigned any deficiency coursework by the academic unit upon admission depending on the undergraduate background, those courses must be completed with a grade of "B" (3.00) or higher before completing the master's program required coursework.
Students pursuing concurrent degrees earn two distinct degrees and receive two diplomas. ASU offers students two ways to earn concurrent degrees: by choosing a predetermined combination or creating their own combination. Predetermined combinations have a single admissions application and one easy to follow major map. To add a concurrent degree to your existing degree, work with your academic advisor. Either way, concurrent degrees allow students to pursue their own personal or professional interests.
