Master's Degree Programs

A graduate degree from Ball State's College of Architecture and Planning can open doors in the environmental design and planning fields, both for professionals already working in the field and those hoping to land a job.

Our graduate programs provide both foundational and advanced education to meet these varying needs. Working professionals and those who already have an undergraduate degree in these fields can expand their knowledge and hone an area of specialization. That, in turn, may lead to higher-level professional positions and greater career satisfaction. Meanwhile, a master’s degree can be the ticket that someone with a degree in another discipline needs in order to enter the field of environmental design and planning.

In either case, the master’s programs blend intensive studio courses, hands-on design projects, and a capstone thesis or creative project. They usually also entail an internship in a professional office or public agency, along with field trips, study-abroad opportunities, and the chance to build upon the experience through service in an assistantship.
