Graduate students engage in research as a fundamental part of their curriculum through participation in our five Graduate Research Groups:
Master of Architecture students in the 3 1/2 year track begin their exploration of the Graduate Research Groups at the start of their third year in the program, and must enroll in courses from at least one of the GRGs during their last three semesters. Students in the 2-year track enroll in GRG-affiliated courses immediately upon entering the program.
Students must commit to a single graduate research group (GRG) each year of their MArch. Students must declare their intended GRG at the conclusion of the prior year. Changes from GRG to GRG mid-year can only be accommodated, if space is available.
