Each of these Master of Science degree programs has its own unique application requirements, prerequisites, and curriculum structure. Students who successfully complete the a master of science in architecture degree are eligible to receive 936 hours of IDP credit—that is 17 per cent of the 5,600 hours of mandatory internship for registration as an architect. To receive the IDP credit, the MS degree must be earned after receiving the MArch degree. The MS metropolitan design track requires summer semester coursework. The other three MS programs do not require summer semester work.
