As a post-professional studio based program, the Master of 建筑 in Urban Design (MAUD) combines intense design instruction, extensive applied research, and knowledge of urban history and theory.
Taking advantage of the remarkable international makeup of the faculty and student body, the MAUD program establishes a common intellectual ground among architects who have a strong interest in engaging the practice and theory of contemporary urbanism.

The MAUD program at the GSD engages multiple design topics that cut across a variety of scales and urban scenarios both within the North American context and in multiple international settings. The program’s studio components focus on speculative design strategies that explore inventive design procedures within a diverse set of urban conditions.
主题 include schemes and scenarios for existing urbanized areas—including the analysis and restructuring of areas from the inner city to the metropolitan edge, the development of new territories—from cities to towns, districts and neighborhoods, and the extension or transformation of historic and contemporary contexts. Recently explored studio geographies include Istanbul, Mexico City, Mumbai, New York City, Quito, Rio de Janeiro, among many others.
In addition to the program’s core curriculum, MAUD students can construct a trans-disciplinary course of study with option studios, lectures and seminar courses from all three departments within the GSD as well as courses from Harvard and MIT’s offerings. As advanced students, MAUD candidates are encouraged to work closely with faculty through the many research labs within the GSD and in other ongoing faculty led applied research and design projects.
Who Should 应用
The program leading to the Master of 建筑 in Urban Design (MAUD) is intended for individuals who have completed a five-year undergraduate professional program in architecture or its equivalent.
学生们 enrolled in the GSD's professional program in 建筑 are also encouraged to apply for a concurrent urban design degree, for which an individual curriculum may be arranged.
Two to three years of experience in professional practice is recommended but not required.
Please note that the MAUD program is now designated as a STEM program making international MAUD graduates eligible to extend their F-1 visas for up to three years in order to work in the United States.
