Graduate degrees in Architecture are for students who want to pursue a research-based career in architecture, such as teaching or research-based design work. The accredited professional degree (M.Arch.) is for students who want to become a professional architect.
The Master of Science is a research-oriented program. In addition to the specialization in Interior Design, students can pursue an area of study from a variety of options (the faculty areas of expertise are listed below). Applicants must have an undergraduate degree in architecture, interior design, or a closely related field.
The College of Architecture is headquartered in Architecture Hall. Constructed in the early 1890s and designated as the university library in 1894, Architecture Hall is the oldest and most distinctive of the occupied structures on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln City Campus. Architecture Hall provides students with an outstanding library and laboratories for computing, photography, woodwork, and metalwork.
