The combined Bachelor of Architecture and the Master of Interior Architecture 5+2 Accelerated Degree is an innovative educational model that allows students to achieve two accredited professional degrees.
The program’s transdisciplinary nature encourages students to think broadly and envision innovative solutions to design-related problems.
The 5+2 BArch/MSIA Accelerated Dual Degree creates a pathway for students who wish to pursue a graduate degree in Interior Architecture while completing the undergraduate, professional program in Architecture.
Curriculum: 6 years
- The 5+1 Accelerated Degree enables an undergraduate Architecture major to complete three graduate courses required by the Master of Interior Architecture program, for a maximum of eleven graduate course credits, while completing the undergraduate Bachelor of Architecture degree.
- By overlapping the two programs, a student achieves advanced standing in the three year, 69-credit Master of Interior Architecture program while an undergraduate and can complete the MSIA degree with an additional 20 credits.
- Upon graduation from the BArch program, a student may fulfill requirements for MSIA in one year of full-time study, comprising fall and spring semesters, for a total reduction of two years of graduate coursework and tuition.
