Master in Classical Architecture and Urbanism

Path A / Master of Architectural Design and Urbanism (2 years)

The 2-year Master of Architectural Design and Urbanism (M.ADU) post-professional degree is intended for students who already hold an accredited professional degree and are seeking to further develop their design skills and critical thinking in the disciplines of classical architecture and traditional urban design.

Path B / Master of Architecture (2 years)

Notre Dame’s two-year Master of Architecture (M.Arch) professional degree is intended for students entering the University of Notre Dame with a four-year pre- professional degree in architecture who are seeking a professional graduate degree that focuses upon classical architecture and traditional urbanism.

Path C / 3-Year Master of Architecture (3 years)

The three-year Master of Architecture (M.Arch) professional degree is intended for students entering the University of Notre Dame with a four-year undergraduate degree in a field other than architecture.

Path D / The Discretionary Dual Degree (3 or 4 years)

At the discretion of the School of Architecture GraduateStudies Committee, one or two M.Arch students per year may be invited to pursue the Discretionary Dual Degree (DDD) course of study. Students who pursue the DDD option spend an additional year of studies at Notre Dame, during which time they spend two semesters rather than one in Rome, complete concentrations in both Classical Architecture and Urban Design, and graduate at the end of their additional yearwith both the professional M.Arch degree and the post-professional M.ADU degree.
