The Design School offers a Master of Science in the Built Environment (MSBE) degree, intended for students who already hold a professionally accredited degree in Architecture (BArch or MArch), Landscape Architecture (BSLA or MLA) or a BS or MS in either engineering or science. The MSBE is accepting applications for the energy performance and climate-responsive architecture concentration; currently, we are not accepting applications for the design knowledge and computing or the facilities, development, and management concentrations. Concurrent application to both MArch and MS degree programs is possible, and each application is evaluated by the respective admission committees separately.

Applications are accepted annually from September 15 to January 15. More information can be found at or by emailing

After admission to their degree program, WRGP qualified applicants may apply to the WRGP program by submitting the WICHE WRGP Application Form found at
