Urban Design, MUD

Home / Degree Programs / Urban Design, MUD

The MUD is a transdisciplinary postprofessional graduate program in The Design School. Students study newly emerging research and applied practices from the disciplines of architecture, landscape architecture, ecology, law, civil engineering, planning, public programs, systems theory and real estate development.

The curriculum is built around the analysis and understanding of contemporary urban conditions specific to rapidly urbanizing and arid regions of the world. The program leverages a number of local factors --- the rapidly expanding Phoenix metropolis, the arid climate, and the area's cultural diversity --- in the development of responsible global initiatives and innovative design strategies for urban environments.
