Undergraduate Degree Programs

The undergraduate pre-professional Bachelor of Science in Architecture (BS Arch) introduces concepts and skills upon which graduate accredited professional Master of Architecture (MArch) studies are based. 
The minor in architecture provides students with a liberal exposure to the humanities, technology, the social sciences, and aesthetic expression through the lenses of the built and the natural environments.
The Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Design offers a pre-professional course of study grounded in the multidisciplinary traditions of the liberal arts and active intervention in community and regional environments through classroom activity, fieldwork, workshops, and internships. 
The minor in environmental design provides students from diverse academic backgrounds a broad foundation in the principles of urban design as well as the form and function of the built environment.

Graduate Degree Programs

The University at Buffalo invites applications from outstanding candidates interested in pursuing a career in research and teaching through its PhD program in urban and regional planning – the first and only one in the State University of New York system.
The two-year Master of Architecture degree is intended for individuals who hold a pre-professional baccalaureate degree in architecture from an NAAB-accredited school of architecture or a professional architecture degree from an international university.
Students from any undergraduate major can study toward a Master of Urban Planning degree. A career in urban planning offers the opportunity to explore and shape the built environment. 
The Master of Science in Architecture provides a flexible program through which students are immersed in special fields of research and practice related to architecture and the built environment. 
Dual-degree programs are available for students entering our graduate degree programs. Students can pursue research and advanced studies by combining degrees like the MS in Architecture with an MUP, MArch or other graduate degree programs across UB.
