Master of Urban Design

Students with a professional degree or the equivalent in architecture, urban planning or landscape architecture may apply for admission to this program, which leads to the Master of Urban Design (MUD) degree. This degree is awarded upon completion of a three-term graduate curriculum devoted to urban design.

The program leads to a STEM-designated post-professional MUD degree with an emphasis on the physical design of the built environment, including issues of the metropolitan landscape.

The Master of Urban Design degree can be combined with study in other divisions at Washington University, including architecture, landscape architecture, public health and social work. To learn more, visit the Dual & Joint Degrees webpage.

These combined programs are of particular value to those who want to pursue an interdisciplinary approach to architecture and urban design and to prepare for a wide array of diverse career opportunities.
