The focus of this program is on understanding the broad and complex role of architecture within the urban context. Studies focus on cities throughout the world where conditions of increasing density, environmental challenges and cultural complexity require design initiatives that support amenity, sustainability and cultural meaning. The certificate is open to graduate students not pursuing a Master of Architecture or Master of Advanced Architectural Studies degree.
Completion of the certificate program requires a minimum of 15 units.
*Students in the Master of Heritage Conservation Program should substitute core class ARCH 558 with another elective. Students with a previous design based degree (or are currently enrolled in one), may be able to substitute ARCH 558 for an elective.
