Architectural Studies

At the Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism, we prepare students for a future in the profession and provide an extraordinary foundation for a multitude of interdisciplinary and related design fields. Our Master in Architectural Studies (MAS) program is a 6-credit, non-accredited degree for students interested in pursuing in-depth architectural research. Should students wish to continue on their research path, the MAS will serve as a prerequisite to enter the PhD in Architecture. All of our programs stress creativity and innovation within theoretical and practical parameters. Graduates within the School can also pursue a Graduate Diploma in Architectural Conservation.
