Doctor of Design Information Session (Virtual) Register →  
The climate crisis, rising social inequality, and the digital revolution of smart cities, computational design, and robotic fabrication are rewriting the way cities are being designed, built, and operated. This creates enormous opportunities for architects, planners, and landscape architects to expand their practice, increase their value to clients, and make a bigger and more positive impact in the world. Mid-career professionals have the experience to identify and capitalize on these opportunities but often need a framework to help bring these ideas to life. Join this information session to explore the program with Dr. John Brown, PhD, SAPL dean.


Master of Environmental Design

A master’s degree for recent graduates of professional architecture, planning, or landscape architecture programs. As a research-intensive, thesis-based degree, emerging professionals are enabled to extend their education beyond the basic professional degree to explore an area of expertise or practice specialization that will build their CV, increase their value to prospective employers, and accelerate their career objectives. Join us to learn more!
