Applications are now open for the graduate programs in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Urban Design at the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis. Apply here.

As part of a tier-one research institution, the Sam Fox School’s Graduate School of Architecture & Urban Design provides a rigorous academic environment where students develop a love of craft and the ability to move fluidly between digital and analog platforms. Our design studios in architecture, landscape architecture, and urban design are organized around cumulative, collective experiences. We focus on environmental ethics, historical and global perspectives, innovation, and technological fluency, providing students with experiences that will allow them to be leaders in their fields. Through critical thinking, research, and cutting-edge programs, we give students the means to improve our world.

Curriculum
Our STEM-designated MArch, MLA, and MUD programs center around four areas of expertise: discipline-based design practice, technology and the arts, social engagement, and resilient cities. We recently launched a revised MArch curriculum, with a 3-year program as well as a 2-year program for advanced students. You can earn a dual degree between programs within the School or joint degree in business, computer science, social work, or construction management. For students who already hold a professional degree in architecture, we also offer a Master of Science in Architectural Studies (MSAS) and a Master of Science in Advanced Architectural Design (MSAAD).

Faculty
Our core faculty have pioneered research in building technology, cultural arts, housing, history, and urban sustainability. And each semester, we engage with cutting-edge architects, designers, and researchers from around the world. Through lectures, workshops, and studio instruction, you’ll learn firsthand from global leaders in their field. Our graduate programs are led by Monica Rivera (Chair, MArch) and Derek Hoeferlin (Chair, MLA + MUD).

Facilities
Weil Hall, our brand-new, LEED Platinum-certified building, is a hub for our graduate programs. With loft-style studios and a digital fabrication lab, it provides ready access to resources and numerous spaces for making across the School, including a textile design studio, digital media labs, a lighting studio, wood and metal shops, and more. Through our weekly Fox Fridays workshop series, students can explore new processes, tools, and materials to develop hybridized practices of creative output that transcend discipline, medium, and experience. Our graduate studios are adjacent to the School's Kranzberg Art & Architecture Library and the recently expanded Kemper Art Museum, which hosts exhibitions by major designers and artists like Ai Weiwei, who visited campus last fall.

Engaging with the Region
The St. Louis region offers a fertile ecological and experimental terrain for resilient design and research. Each semester we engage in projects and courses that address critical research in race, ethnicity, and diversity through our Office of Socially Engaged Practice. A mid-size city with an out-sized cultural scene, St. Louis is a place of unprecedented access—and one of the most affordable, culturally exciting cities to launch your career.

Financial Aid & Scholarships
We offer a variety of competitive financial assistance opportunities to students. Last fall, we launched the Sam Fox Ambassadors Graduate Fellowship Program, which awards an additional 10 full-tuition scholarships each year to outstanding candidates; all graduate program applicants are automatically considered.
