Students may concurrently pursue two degrees offered by the GSD. Often concurrent degrees are completed with two of our professional degree programs (MArch I, MLA I, MUP). If you apply to more than one program, you will need to submit a separate application fee and form for each program and must be admitted into each degree program independently. The minimum full-time residency for concurrent degree programs is one academic year (two semesters) more than the residency requirement for the longer of the two programs.
PhD students must apply through the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
